The reserve is included in the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Program. Beeches abound in Boatin Reserve. These 200 year old trees, some over 50 meters tall, are among the largest protected all beech massifs in Europe. About 600 higher flora species are also represented here. The only concentration of dwarf pine in the Central Balkan Range is in the Reserve’s vicinity.
Mammals typically found in the temperate zone have homes in the Boatin Reserve: brown bears, wolves, foxes, wild cats, martens, weasels, red deer, roe, and wild boar. In the not-so-distant past, lynx resided in the Reserve. In addition, there are 64 species of nesting birds, among them the Urals owls, Tengmaum’s owls, red-breasted and semi-collared flycatchers, southern white-backed and black woodpeckers, and peregrine falcons.
