Boundaries of the natural spaces of Catalonia that form part of the European Natura 2000 network. Natura 2000 is a European ecological network of areas that may have been proposed as special protection areas for birds (ZEPA) in accordance with the Directive 2009/147/CEE, also known as the Birds Directive, and/or as Special Areas of Conservation (ZEC) in accordance with Directive 92/43/CEE, also known as the Habitats Directive. In the first instance, the Government of Catalonia approves the proposal for sites of Community importance (LIC) for the Natura 2000 network of the areas of the Alpine and Mediterranean biogeographical regions. Subsequently, the European Commission adopts the conformity of this proposal and finally the Government of Catalonia declares the LICs as ZECs.
