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 nature. Actions undertaken in this area are intended specifically to help finance projects which work towards the implementation of Council Directive 92/43/EEC on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora (the Habitats Directive) and of Council Directive 79/409/EEC on the conservation of wild birds (the Birds Directive). The final list of projects funded in 1995 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 72 projects were co-financed in 1995. Of these 49 were new projects with a total contribution of 24.86 million ECU from the EC, the other 23 were additions to on-going projects.
