Nature conservation law comprises the rules laid down in the Nature Conservation Act (prior to January 2017, the Nature Conservation Act 1998 and the Flora and Fauna Act). This Act is based on the (European) Birds and Habitats Directives. Plans, projects and activities may require a permit or exemption under this Act. If so, an extensive ecological assessment must be performed. Nature conservation law is complex, highly detailed and often amended.
