The Nature Conservation Act includes numerous prohibitions related to the conservation of nature reserves and species, the purpose of which is to preserve natural biodiversity. Nature reserves typically prohibit all activities that affect natural habitats, as defined in their establishment provisions and decisions.

The altering of protected natural habitat types and, in particular,  the deterioration or destruction of species habitats is prohibited. Protected species are governed by their own prohibitions. It is also prohibited to destroy or deteriorate the breeding sites or resting places of species referred to in annex IV (a) of the Habitats Directive. CITES regulations, which regulate the international trade of endangered species, also impose trade restrictions on certain species.
In some cases, the appropriate authorities may grant derogations from these prohibitions.
