What does "Natura 2000 und FFH-Richtlinie" mean ?

Landkreis Rosenheim - LIFE-Nature Project

The Fauna-Flora-Habitat-Richtlinie (FFH-RL) is the European Habitats Directive that enforces the conservation of natural habitats, wild fauna and flora.
It was adopted in 1992 from the European Union along with the Birds Directive (Vogelschutzrichtlinie, 1979) and creates a binding European nature conservation law. With this order, a network of protected sites (biotopes) should be formed across the European Union giving shelter to very valuable natural domains of threatened species of plants and animals.
The FFH-areas (SAC -> Special Areas of Conservation) in the Rosenheim Bogs (Rosenheimer Stammbeckenmoore) serve especially the protection of fauna and flora habitats in raised bogs and mires.
Natura 2000 is a network through all Europe with more than 20,000 conservation areas in which special animal and plant types are to be preserved. Further valuable biotopes should be kept protected for future generations.
As one of the most comprehensive nature protection projects, Natura 2000 makes a major contribution to the international Biological Diversity committed in Rio de Janeiro 1992.

In the "Sterntaler Filze" lies the last rest of a natural, raised bog free of woodlands. According to the FFH directive, this habitat has top priority for protection. Trees and bushes along old dehydrating ditches also show here a marginal drainage which LIFE will undo.


All around the project area there is the biggest bat colony in Bavaria (greater mouse-eared bat, Myotis myotisin). In the church tower's attic is the so called nursery roost where baby bats grow. This very rare bat species is strongly threatened all through Europe. (Photo: A Zahn)


The Moth species Abbiss–Scheckenfalter (Euphydrias aurinia) with 3 colors on his top is still a steady member wetland meadows in the project region. It belongs to the Day Moth species of the FFH Derivative that has to be protected.


The "Glanzstendel" (Liparis loeselii) is a orchide that you might miss at the first look. It blossoms especially well in the wet litter meadows of the project area. As of being very rare, it profits from the special protection measures. (Photo: R. Timm)
