In May 1992 the European Union adopted a Financial Instrument for the Environment known as LIFE. Focusing on five priority fields of action this fund is destined to help develop and implement the Union's environment policy as outlined in the Fifth Environmental Action Programme. One of the five priority fields is the protection of habitats and of nature. Actions undertaken in this area include those intended specifically to help finance projects which work towards, and provide an incentive for, the implementation of Council Directives 92/43/EEC on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora, and 79/409/EEC on the conservation of wild birds. The list of projects funded in 1994 under the field of action for the protection of habitats and of nature is given in this document, together with a brief description of each project's background and purpose. Altogether 47 projects were co-financed in 1994. Of these 34 were new projects and 13 were on-going projects already agreed by the Committee in previous years but for which an additional financial contribution was requested in 1994. 3 Of these 13 were so radically modified in terms of their actions that new contracts were drawn up for them.
