Third Boreal Biogeographical Process Seminar

Dates: Monday, 14 October – Wednesday, 16 October 2019

Location: Tallinn, Estonia


The third Natura 2000 seminar for the Boreal region took place from 14 to 16 October this year. It was hosted by the Estonian Ministry of the Environment in the Tallinn Zoo, in Tallinn, Estonia. This event provided an opportunity for all those involved in the development and management of the Natura 2000 network to discuss issues and exchange knowledge, helping to achieve the favourable conservation status of species and habitats of the Birds and Habitats Directives.

The main aim of the seminar was for the identification, prioritisation and development of transboundary cooperative actions, which can contribute to the operational and effective implementation of the requirements of the Natura 2000 network and ultimately help improve the conservation status of species and habitats of European interest.

The event consisted of plenary sessions, a series of breakout sessions on specific themes, together with excursions to look at on the ground examples of management issues and solutions. The key output from the seminar was an updated roadmap for future conservation actions, with an emphasis on identifying collaborative projects that can benefit habitats and species across the Boreal region.
