Natura 2000 sites constitute a vital element in the safeguarding of this country’s remaining natural heritage landscape. Their efficient management, oversight protection and administration should be matters of paramount importance.

It would appear, however, that the excellent initiative by the previous administration to set up a Nature Agency has fallen victim to the limbo into which the environment has been cast by the new Labour government.

Almost a year after the election, the much-vaunted (though also highly criticised) splitting of the Environmental Directorate from Mepa has still not happened. The Minister for Sustainable Development, the Environment and has effectively been neutered.
