Establish priorities for nature conservation; define the most important habitats in Western Europe and indicate the areas which should be restored to a high ecological value; conserve, enhance and restore key ecosystems, habitats, species and features of the landscape; develop an integrated network which includes 'ecological corridors' along which species may migrate between the different areas; contribute to achieving the main goals of the Strategy by ensuring conservation of a full range of ecosystems, habitats, species and their genetic diversity and of landscapes of European importance, that habitats are large enough to place species in a favourable conservation status and that there are sufficient opportunities for their dispersal and migration.
