Natura 2000 is the name for a European network of protected areas established by the European Union together with the Member States after notification of the appropriate areas by the Member States (pSCI = proposed Site of Community Importance). This notification of areas must be made in a so-called “National List Natura 2000”. The Habitats Directive provides a legal basis for this. In addition to the Habitats Directive, there is also an obligation, in accordance with the Birds Directive, to declare the most suitable areas for the protection of rare and endangered bird species as protected areas (SPA = Special Protection Area). Protected areas under the Habitats Directive and protected areas under the Birds Directive are then part of the Natura 2000 network. The two directives pursue the common objective of safeguarding biodiversity through the conservation of natural habitats, wildlife and wild birds. The European Protected Areas Natura 2000 Habitats Directive (pSCI) are assigned to the INSPIRE Data Topic Protected Areas (Annex I).
