Natura 2000 and Hunting

With this project, IUCN assesses the European Commission’s Sustainable Hunting Initiative and analyses its strengths and weaknesses. We encourage greater engagement of the hunting community in the implementation of the birds’ directive and the habitats’ directive and want to further engage the community of wildlife recreational users in conservation and management of Natura 2000.
