Abstract In 1979 the European Economic Community for the first time adopted provisions of its own on nature conservation and species protection in the form of the Birds Directive 79/409. Since then 35 years have passed. Not only have the Member SMember Statestates worked to implement the directive during this period, but there
have also been a large number of court judgments on its application and interpretation. This paper seeks to set out the progress made with interpreting the crucial provisions of the directive and, in particular, to provide an overview of the court practice of the European Court of Justice (ecj) and the German Federal Administrative Court (BVerwG). It also draws attention to unresolved issues and implementation deficits.
