From Baltic peatlands to bird migration over Mediterranean islands, NABU is actively involved in many nature conservation and environmental projects on the continent — together with its BirdLife Partners and other European networks. Most of Germany’s environmental legislation is determined by decisions taken in Brussels. EU agriculture and fishing policies have a heavy impact on how land and seas are used across the continent.
Through its political lobbying and campaigns NABU has influenced many important decisions, protecting thousands of important bird areas by EU law, saving precious sites in Poland and reducing illegal hunting in Malta and Cyprus. We saved and increased the EU-LIFE funding programme, which helps to implement important cross-border nature conservation measures such as the LIFE Climate Mitigation project “Peat Restore”.
