Biotope protection


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 found in our country were created by human activities or are due to certain forms of land use.

There are laws and international agreements to protect these habitats. The state of Saxony-Anhalt has regulated the special protection of biotopes in § 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 unlawful and the competent nature conservation authority can use the polluter to restore the original condition. If, for overriding reasons of the common good, such impairments are unavoidable, they can, if they can be compensated or replaced, be approved on request by the nature conservation authority with conditions for compensation or replacement.

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

For the nature conservation-friendly care of these areas, the land manager can apply for funding according to nature conservation funding programs at the responsible lower nature conservation authority of the district or the district-free city.
