Eco-activists approach EC again over Bulgaria's NATURA 2000

Date: 28.02.2008

Bulgarian eco-organizations have lodged another complaint against the Bulgarian government with the European Commission over violations of the Natura 2000 programme.

According to the eco-activists, the construction of wind power stations in the area of Kaliakra Cape in the northern Bulgarian Black Sea Coast violates the European directives and causes damage to the wildlife in the protected region.

The organisations also say that significant investors' interest is behind the systematic violations.

Bulgarian environmentalists have organized numerous protests against the government eco policy and filed a complain in the EC in July over the cabinet's intention to cut by half the territories included in the network.

NATURA 2000 is a set of areas in the EU member states where plant and animal species and their habitats must be protected, enforcing the bloc's Birds Directive of 1979 and the Habitats Directive of 1992.

The member states are responsible for managing these areas and must ensure conservation of the species and habitats designated by community law.

While human activities, such as farming, are still authorized within these areas, they must be compatible with the aim of conservation.
