EUROPARC invites members to answer the EC consultation on Birds and Habitats directives, for the future of the Natura 2000 network.

The two main pieces of EU nature legislation, 1979’s Directive on the conservation of wild birds (Birds Directive) and 1992’s Directive on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora (Habitats Directive) are currently being evaluated by the European Commission.

As these directives have a clear territorial dimension, the Committee of the Regions is evaluating their impact on the local and regional level. The aim of this consultation is to gather the views of site managers and management authorities of Natura 2000 sites on the implementation and the effects of these directives on the local and regional level.

The consultation will be open from 15th of April to 15th of May included.

The questionnaire would not take more than 5 minutes of your time and it is available in 23 EU languages in form of a short e-survey.

We look forward to your contributions.
