Natura 2000 site conservation and management on the Lithuanian coast (LIFE05 NAT/LT/000095)

LIFE05 NAT/LT/000095

The project area covered a total of 60 000 ha of Lithuanian coastal areas, encompassing the terrestrial areas within the Curonian Spit national park, the Nemunas Delta regional park and the entire Lithuanian part of the Curonian Lagoon. Within this area, the project aimed to ensure a favourable conservation status for seven habitats, four bird species and one plant species of Community importance listed in the annexes of the EU nature directives. The project would also prepare management plans and establish new Natura 2000 coastal sites for the protection of rare and endangered birds, fish and habitats in the targeted areas. Information material would be prepared on the protection, supervision, management and observation of habitats and species. Finally, the project aimed to improve public awareness about the protection and sustainable management of the country's Natura 2000 coastal sites.
