Meet the Natura 2000 heroes

Natura 2000 Award

Since its launch in 2014, the European Natura 2000 Award has built up a catalogue of impressive initiatives and achievements.

Discover previous editions of the Award below and find out what Natura 2000 heroes have been doing in their regions to protect Europe’s unique natural heritage. Using the map, you can navigate through excellent Natura 2000 initiatives from across the EU using the map filters and search function below. 

Please note that the category labels have been simplified for use in the map.  The categories labels may therefore differ slightly from the category an application was submitted to.
