Corravokeen lies along the eastern edge of the Bellacorick Bog Complex Special Area of Conservation.
This SAC is one of the largest blanket bog-dominated cSACS in Ireland and thus ranks as one of the
most important blanket bog landscapes in Europe. The property is dominated by a relatively
productive conifer crop and an area of conifers, which adjoins open bog, have been recently felled.
Most of this area is proposed for restoration following the removal of the conifer crop. These
areas of plantation have been felled and removed for sale.
Any significant drains will be blocked
in order to raise the watertable within the peat. In addition to these productive areas of plantation
there are also areas dominated by low-yielding conifers. The trees in these areas will be felled to
waste. In addition to the conifer-dominated areas there are a number of small islands of largely
intact blanket bog habitat which are surrounded by conifer plantation. The largest area of open
blanket bog habitat contains a number of floristically-rich flushed areas which support rare plant
species such as cranberry (Vaccinium oxycoccus) and the moss Homalothecium nitens.
