Biotope protection

Description

Protected biotopes are habitats of special plant and animal species. These habitats deserve special protection, either because they are extremely rare, have a high ecological value or are threatened with destruction. Most of the biotopes we have found are due to human activities or are due to certain forms of land use.

There are laws and international agreements to protect these habitats. The Land of Saxony-Anhalt has regulated the special protection of biotopes in Section 37 of the Nature Conservation Act.

For the special protection of a biotope, no matter where it is located, its mere existence is sufficient. However, legal protection alone is not sufficient for the preservation of biotopes, which is why active action is required.

Damage and destruction caused by ignorance are also illegal and the competent nature conservation authority can use the polluter to restore the cause to its original condition. If, for overriding reasons of public interest, such impairments are unavoidable, they may be authorised, if they are removable or replaceable, on request by the nature protection authority, subject to conditions of compensation or replacement.

Whether a biotope is subject to special protection can be asked by the lower nature conservation authority of the district or the district-free city.

For the conservation of these areas, the land-management can apply to the competent lower nature conservation authority of the district or the district-free city for funding according to nature conservation programmes.
