21st May - European Natura 2000 Day

Energy, Environment, Co-op & Development,-,

News To mark the 25th Anniversary of the Habitats Directive and of the LIFE Programme, the European Commission declared 21st May as “European Natura 2000 Day”.

European Natura 2000 Day relates to the 21st May 1992, when both EU Habitats Directive and LIFE programme were approved. This Directive together with the Birds Directive (approved earlier in 1979) became a base of Natura 2000 Network and has successfully contributed to the preservation of our unique European natural heritage. Consisting of more than 27 000 sites, the Natura 2000 Network became one of the EU's most outstanding achievements.

In order to celebrate and promote the Natura 2000 Network, a number of local events in different Member States will be organised.
