Abstract Bird Special Protected Areas (SPA) are designated in the EU member states on the basis of the 1979 Birds Directive. The Birds Directive aims to preserve all native bird species existing in the EU member states. In addition, large enough populations should be established and maintained to ensure the long-term survival of the species. At the moment, the Birds Directive mentions about 190 species and sub-species that are particularly endangered and worth protecting.
