Marine species and habitats in the EU: status, trends and distribution

Under Article 17 of the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) EU Member States need to report to the European Commission on the conservation status, trends and distribution of the habitats referred to in Annex I and the species in Annex II, IV and V. In parallel, under Article 12 of the Birds Directive (2009/147/EC), they have to report on the population size, trends and distribution of the bird species in their territories.

The present dashboards make available a number of figures showing the status, trends and distribution of the (non-bird) species and habitats reported for the period 2007-2012 and population distribution, trends and size of birds for the period 2008-2012.

They will be updated in 2020 with the information for the period 2013-2018.

The sources used to build the dashboards are reported at the bottom of the page.
