Please visit the Natura 2000 reference portal for the Standard Data Form for the most up-to-date lists, http://bd.eionet.europa.eu/activities/Natura_2000/reference_portal. List of species in Birds and Habitats Directive Annexes. The table contains the species listed and references to annex number. For legal purposes the only valid information is the relevant directive itself. Directive 2009/147/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on the conservation of wild birds (this is the codified version of Directive 79/409/EEC as amended) is the EU’s oldest piece of nature legislation and one of the most important, creating a comprehensive scheme of protection for all wild bird species naturally occurring in the Union. The Habitats Directive (together with the Birds Directive) forms the cornerstone of Europe's nature conservation policy. It is built around two pillars: the Natura 2000 network of protected sites and the strict system of species protection.
