NATURA 2000 Bird areas in Slovakia Presentation took place 18.10. – 23.10.2010 in Slovakia.
European programme Natura 2000 What is Natura 2000? The national register of bird areas suggested for protection in Slovakia. Why birds were chosen to be protected in the first place? Non-governmental organization Natura Opava – Czech Republic Non-governmental organization for environmental education, advice and other activities The activities of Natura Opava in Czech Republic, Poland and Greece
What is Natura 2000? Natura 2000 is an ecological network of protected areas in the territory of the European Union. In May 1992, the governments of the European Communities adopted legislation designed to protect the most seriously threatened habitats and species across Europe. This legislation is called the Habitats Directive and complements the Birds Directive adopted in 1979. These two directives are the basis of the creation of the Natura 2000 network. Each EU Member State must compile a list of the best wildlife areas containing the habitats and species listed in the Habitats Directive and the Birds Directive. This list must then be submitted to the European Commission, after which an evaluation and selection process on European level will take place in order to become a Natura 2000 site. The network of Natura 2000 sites is spread throughout Europe, from Finland in the north to the Canary Islands in the south. Today, sites, cover about 20% of the European territory, so most European citizens will not live far from a Natura 2000 site! More information and interactive map: Clic here.

Biotope Biotope is an area of uniform environmental conditions providing a living place for a specific assemblage of plants and animals. Biotope is almost synonymous with the term habitat, but while the subject of a habitat is a species or a population, the subject of a biotope is a biological community.

Habitats Directive The Habitats Directive (more formally known as Council Directive 92/43/EEC on the Conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora) is a European Union directive adopted in 1992 as an EU response to the Berne Convention. It is one of the EU's two directives in relation to wildlife and nature conservation, the other being the Birds Directive. It aims to protect some 220 habitats and approximately 1,000 species listed in the directive's Annexes. Annex I covers habitats, Annex II species requiring designation of Special Areas of Conservation, Annex IV species in need of strict protection, and Annex V species whose taking from the wild can be restricted by European law. These are species and habitats which are considered to be of European interest, following criteria given in the directive. The directive led to the setting up of a network of Special Areas of Conservation, which together with the existing Special Protection Areas form a network of protected sites across the European Union called Natura 2000. Article 17 of the directive requires EU Member States to report on the state of their protected areas every six years. The first complete set of country data was reported in 2007.

Birds Directive The Birds Directive (more formally known as Council Directive 2009/147/EC on the conservation of wild birds) is a European Union directive adopted in 2009. It replaces Council Directive 79/409/EEC of 2 April 1979 on the conservation of wild birds which was several times modified and, thus, had become very unclear. It aims to protect all European wild birds and the habitats of listed species, in particular through the designation of Special Protection Areas (often known by the acronym SPA). The Birds Directive is one of the EU's two directives in relation to wildlife and nature conservation, the other being the Habitats Directive. The Habitats Directive led to the setting up of a network of Special Areas of Conservation, which together with the existing Special Protection Areas form a network of protected sites across the European Union called Natura 2000 Information from European Commission Environment and from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In the Levice district it includes a cadastral area Pastovice. The photos used in the presentation were taken by Milan Kubačka and Jakub Kubačka. The photos of the protected bird species living in the area of Pastovce were taken as laboratory specimens of the preparator Vilem Boruvka (Opava), in the depository of Silesian museum in Opava. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ipolyp%C3%A1szt%C3%B303.JPG

Because we are interested in their way of life. Many of them can sing nicely and they are colourful. They are active, so it is possible to see them. They are useful. People like feeding them in birdfeeders in winter or in the water. Why birds were chosen to be protected in the first place?
