Merger with Natura 2000
I see that a merger with Natura 2000 has been proposed. I'm against it because the Emerald Network is bigger than the Natura 2000 network. The Emerald Network is part of the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats or Bern Convention. The Emerald Network is an ecological network in the 39 member states of the Council of Europe, together with the European Union, Monaco, Burkina Faso, Morocco, Tunisia and Senegal. The Natura 2000 network is an ecological network in the teritorry of the European Union. Because the EU and its member states also signed the Bern Convention its Natura 2000 network is a part of the Emerald Network. So I'm against a merger, because it are two different networks of two different organisations. Peter Maas 12:51, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
Opposed The two are quite distinct even if the purposes are substantially the same. Bejnar 19:29, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
