Abstract: 
In Matsalu National Park there is a former coastal meadow site (Naturea 2000 and Ramsar site) next to a big Salmi coastal meadow with many priority species. On the site the old non-functioning small ditches were closed and scraped to restore the wetland hydrology and breeding and feeding grounds for waders and amphibians. Before the restoration works the area was used mainly for bovine grazing and the restoration did not change the conditions for that. However, due to the activities drinking water will be better available for the cattle.
