Aberdeen Student Law Review: Volume 9

  The   future of the Natura 2000 network in
                   post-Brexit Britain

Natura  2000  is Europe's signature biodiversity conservation network
governed by the Habitats and the Birds Directive. However, after Brexit, the
question arises what will become of its British part. An option for the
British could be to retain Natura 2000 after exiting the European Union
and evolve it to tackle some of its flaws, one of them being the lack of
scientific information about the biodiversity it aims to protect. This
argument  will be developed using a  parallel situation in India as an
example. IMhen India became independent from the British, it decided to
keep  some  aspects  of the  British judicial system.  Motivated  by
environmental necessity, India evolved the inherited judicial structure and
created a new tribunal, the National Green Tribunal. It operates under
innovative procedural rules and holds the prospect to tackle systemic
weaknesses in India's nature conservation reality. By retaining Natura
2000 post-Brexit the UK, as well, could develop a given system further - the
nature conservation network Natura 2000. A  viable option could be the
testing of innovative data gathering solutions to tackle the problem of
existing scientific knowledge gaps.

                          1. Introduction

After more  than  four decades  of membership,   the UK  is about to
leave the EU.  Many   questions arise in the context of this planned
separation. One regards a topic that seems rather far down the Brexit
agenda:  the Natura 2000  network. Natura  2000 is a coherent nature
