This Natura 2000 database is an extract from the EUNIS database. It is a sub-sample of the European Natura 2000 database that holds information about sites designated by EU Member States under the Birds Directive (79/409/EEC) and the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC)

GIS data

Natura 2000 EUNIS database


Additional information

It is Specially Protected Areas (SPAs) for birds and adopted Sites of Community Importance (SCIs) for habitats and other species. The EUNIS sub-sample database has information on sites officially adopted by the European Commission. Examples of the information provided are site code, location, lists of fauna, flora and habitat types. The EUNIS sub-sample database is also available for interactive querying in the EUNIS portal. The European Natura 2000 descriptive database contains all the information reported by Member States, i.e. also information on sites not yet adopted by the Commission. The elaboration of GIS features for Natura 2000 is an ongoing project, which has not yet been completed. Both the European descriptive database and the preliminary GIS features are managed by the European Commission, DG Environment. For access, please apply to Ms. Angelika Rubin: EEA supports DG Environment on the Natura 2000 data collection process especially through the work of its European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (ETC/BD), please consult supporting the European Union Natura 2000 network.
