Quote: 

EU Heads of State have signed up to the target of not just halting the loss of biodiversity and the degradation of ecosystem services in the EU by 2020, but also restoring them. How will the Birds and Habitats Directives help us meet this target, in the middle of not just a biodiversity crisis, but also economic and climate change crises?
