Abstract

Natura 2000 is a network of nature protection areas established by the European Union under the Habitats Directive (European Union 1992). The aim is to assure long-term survival of the most valuable and endangered species and habitats in Europe. The network comprises special areas of conservation and protection designated by the member states under, respectively, the Habitats Directive and the Birds Directive. The establishment of the network of protected areas also fulfils a community obligation under the Convention of Biological Diversity of the United Nations.
