Protected areas

Related topics

This dataset answers the questions: how extensive are protected areas and what management objectives are pursued via protected area designation? This dataset provides country-level protected area coverage for the terrestrial and marine domains calculated from the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA). The exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of a country extends 200 nautical miles from the coastline, or to the mid-point between coastlines where the EEZ of different countries would otherwise overlap.
