Abstract [en]

The "wolf issue" is hot all over Europe, not least in the Nordic countries. Due to pressure from farmers' and hunters' organisations, license hunts are performed on a large scale basis in Norway, Sweden and Finland. As the wolf is strictly protected under the Habitats Directive, hunts must have a legal basis in a derogation decision according to Article 16(1). Many of the hunting decisions issued by the authorities under this provision have been challenged in the national courts by the ENGO community, but so far with little success. However, in late 2017, the Finnish organisation Tapiola brought a case all the way to the Supreme Administrative Court, which requested a preliminary ruling by the CJEU on whether such a license hunt is in line with the Directive. The Advocate General's opinion in this case (C-674/17) came in May. This article is a comment to that opinion.
