Natura 2000

Once Slovenia agreed to come to the European Union, it also agreed to work on the Pan European Ecological network called Natura 2000. Slovenia had to designate Natura 2000 sites on bases of the bird directive and the habitat directive. The proposed bird sites were called "SPA" and the proposed habitat directive areas were called "pSCI".
Due to the occurrance of so many bird directive and habitat directive species 35% of Slovenia is proposed as a Natura 2000 site. The government and the non-governmental organisations are severely investigating these areas on the densities and conservation status of these species. When this is done these areas should be managed in sustainable way that the species occurring here are protected.Click here for other information about nature conservation in general or Natura 2000 in Slovenia in particular.
