Llangorse lake, and its surroundings, are home to an impressive range of plants and animals - a biodiversity melting pot. The locality is a refuge for no less than 23 plant species that are rare in Wales, and a further 15 that are rare in Breconshire.

The wide variety of plants and other food sources attract a wide range of birds including Great Crested Grebe, Mute Swan, Canada Goose, Moorhen and Coot. The reed beds are also an important habitat for thousands of starlings.
Some 20 species arrive for the winter, including teal, tufted duck, pochard, great crested grebe and coot. It is an important site for many species that stop to feed here on migration including the occasional osprey.The lakes reedy marshes are an ideal place from which to study a wide variety of waterfowl.
