In a press release today, BirdLife Europe brought the attention to the failure of most EU countries to declare a comprehensive network of Marine Protected Areas as mandated by the EU’s Birds Directive. This puts most European seabird species at risk and delays urgently needed protection of our marine environment. BirdLife Europe calls upon the European Commission to stop tolerating this unacceptable situation and to start infringement processes in all countries that are breaking EU law. The press release was launched in connection to the World Ocean Day, which falls tomorrow.
