Countries

We have created a series of country profile pages bringing together data on protected areas, protected species and habitats, ecosystems and policies.

Protected areas

Combining protected areas from Natura 2000 and nationally designated areas these pages give you information on the number and coverage of protected areas in each country, information on the distribution of protected areas by size, as well as  list the number of Natura 2000 sites in a country that have the highest number of protected species and habitats. For more information on protected areas in Europe, consult the digital Protected Areas report.

Protected species and habitats

Using data collected from EU Member States on the conservation status of protected species and habitats. For more information on protected species and habitats in Europe, consult the State of Nature Report.

Ecosystems

Using data collected on ecosystems as part of the “Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services project we show the composition of countries by ecosystems as well as the showing the ecosystems protected areas cover. For more information on ecosystems  in Europe, consult the Ecosystems section of this website and the Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services: The state and trends of ecosystems in the European Union" Report.
