This classification includes special areas within the Natura 2000 Network (EC directive 79/409 and 92/43) that do not have any other site status and where traditional uses and activities are possible provided they do not violate the fundamental values. Natura 2000 is a European network of protected areas that includes Sites of Community Importance (S.C.I.) and Special Protection Areas for Birds (ZEPA).
