EU Habitats Directives under threat - please help
The Birds and Habitats Directives form the cornerstone of Europeís nature conservation policy, providing a vital common legislative
framework for protecting species and habitats across all of the EUís 28 member states.
A 'fitness check' of these that is underway at present is in danger of being hijacked by vested interests wishing to reduce the protection of species and habitats, but we can help oppose this by making our views heard.
Please add your name to the questionnaire at and encourage people to make their views known on Twitter at #defendnature before 24th July.
