The Great Region, located between Rhine, Mosel, Sarre and Meuse, has a total area of 65.401 km2. Biogeographically, it is spread over the oceanic and continental zones.
The administrative complexity of the Great Region, four countries and five regional entities, offer a challenging opportunity for trans-boundary collaboration in terms of Nature Conservation. Since many years, administrations, scientists and naturalists gather primary biodiversity data that are crucial for science-based decisions making.
This website offers a trans-boundary view on species observations related to Birds and Habitats Directive, this project will deliver a more accurate evaluation of Natura2000 network. By linking nature monitoring, scientific research and innovation technology, it exposes publically funded data to a wider public and raises biodiversity loss awareness.
