Protected areas are further safeguarded by additional pieces of legislation. The Directive on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides (2009/128/EC) restricts the use of pesticides in nature conservation areas. The Directive on Environmental Liability (2004/35/EC) requires measures to prevent damage to protected species or habitats, and restoration measures in cases where such damage has occurred.
