Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Report Progress

The aim of The EU Zoo Inquiry 2011 is to evaluate the implementation and enforcement of the EC Directive 1999/22 (relating to the keeping of wild animals in zoos), its transposition into national law, national enforcement of that law and the status and performance of zoos in compliance with their legal requirements. In order to ensure a constructive approach and to seek solutions for any failings identified by the investigation, the Born Free Foundation and ENDCAP Member NGOs are keen to open dialogue with the respective national government, before information is provided to the European Commission. This then provides an opportunity for the Competent Authority in the Member State to identify actions, or to develop a work plan, that will address the identified shortfalls.

The table below provides an overview of this process and an indication as to how each Member State is aiming to address any problems in application of legislation, or non-compliance with national law. This information will be updated on a regular basis as this project rolls out to all Member States involved.

NB. Work Plans and/or updates referenced in the table have been provided by the respective Member State. The Born Free Foundation and ENDCAP cannot be held accountable for these actions or any resulting implications.
