Gibraltar ecoTHE EU has opened an investigation on the UK’s protection of Gibraltar’s environmentally protected zones.

Both the rock and the southern waters of Gibraltar are designated British Special Conservation Zones.

The committee is investigating whether the UK has instated the proper measures for conserving the protected ecosystems amid rising tensions between the UK and Spain over Gibraltar’s waters.

If the UK’s efforts prove insufficient, the European Commission investigating will be able to denounce London in the EU’s Court of Justice, after a two month response period.
