The reserve's diverse habitats support a broad variety of plants and animals, including rare species such as least terns, piping plovers, arethusa orchids and slender blue flag iris. Reserve facilities are situated at historic Laudholm Farm and its activities are supported in part by Laudholm Trust, a nonprofit organization formed in 1982 to protect Laudholm Farm.
