The greatest nature conservation problem of the early 21st century alongside climate change is the progressive loss of biodiversity.
Speaking up for nature, EuroNatur fights at international level for a nature conservation policy which will create perspectives for the future for both nature and humans in Europe. We campaign to see planned measures for the preservation of our European heritage genuinely carried out in practice. Among other affiliations EuroNatur is a member of the European Habitat Forum.
EuroNatur monitors and comments on political processes concerning the protection of biodiversity at EU and Federal level. An example here is the implementation of the Flora Fauna Habitat (FFH) and Bird protection guidelines. To date the efforts made for the protection of species diversity by the German Federal government and the European Commission are far from sufficient. Amendments and further efforts are urgently needed.
