Dear EEA,

I am a student in European law and I am spending a practical period at PAN Parks Foundation during August.
The aim of my research project is to look into how the current Birds and Habitats directives secure the protection of wilderness and what are the outstanding challenges.
In order to progress in my study, I would know whether it exists a publicly accessible database for Natura 2000-sites that includes the conservation objectives.
If not, I would be very grateful if you could advice me on how I could acquaint myself with the conservation objectives.
Thank you very much in advance for your reply.
Best regards,

Sarah

Dear Sarah,
Kind thanks for your question. There are several ways for looking into this: In the EEA biodiversity Data centre, http://www.eea.europa.eu//themes/biodiversity/dc either you can look into the Natura 2000 viewer and see the habitat types and species of the directives that the site is designated for, which constitute the conservation objectives of the sites according to law http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/natura-2000-european-protected-areas. A more interactive way of using the data bases is available from the EUNIS viewer, http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/, where descriptive information on species, sites and habitat types are interlinked to the sites. You can also download the entire database from EEA’s website: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/natura-2 - this is the direct link, that is also accessible from the Biodiversity data center as mentioned below. The database is good for querying several sites. If also you are looking for information on a site by site basis, the Natura 2000 map viewer and Eunis will give the same information. The conservation objectives are listed in the Standard data form section 3 Ecological information.

Best regards

Dear EEA,
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I am looking forward to your answer. (To be sure that my question will be well understood, I specify that the "conservation objectives" I am looking for, are those that the Member States have to formulate when they designate a Natura 2000 site).
Best regards,
Sarah
