Bird directive

The bird directive already exists from 1979 and onwards. Its main aim is to protect birds in the European Union. Especially their habitats will be protected and there are restrictions on hunting and trade of bird species. The habitats should be protected for the birds shown in Annex I. It is prohibited to hunt all bird species except for the once shown in Annex II. At last the trade in bird species is only allowed for the species announced in Annex III.
For the SPA's the bird species in the Slovenian bird list according to Annex I were taken into consideration.
