Additional information

To date, Natura 2000 is a unique international network comprising 22 419 Sites of Community Importance (SCIs) under the
Habitats Directive and 5 242 Special Protection Areas (SPAs) under the Birds Directive (EC, 2009).
Therefore, overall more than 17 % of EU land is designated as Natura 2000 sites (EC, 2009).
The marine part of the network is still in development. Currently, only about 6 % of SCIs and 10 % of SPAs are marine sites.
