Question for written answer E-005105-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Rina Ronja Kari (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  The light-bellied brent goose on Egholm
 Answer in writing 

Referring to the 1992 Habitats Directive, as well as the 1979 Birds Protection Directive, both of which seek to conserve habitat areas for vulnerable animal and plant species, with the long-term aim of ensuring healthy biodiversity.

Pointing out that these Directives must be interpreted dynamically so that the relevant authorities are required to designate new areas solely based on environmental criteria.

Pointing out the fact that the size of the light-bellied brent goose population is insufficiently low according to researchers from Aarhus University and the Danish Ornithological Society. And that a significant part of the global stock is found on Egholm(1).

1. Is the Commission aware of the fact that the population of the light-bellied brent goose is most prevalent all over Egholm? 2. On these grounds, does the Commission not believe that the entire island of Egholm ought to be designated a Natura 2000 area?
