We currently do not show all MPAs in our MPA – Restricted Use and MPA – No Take layers as their restrictions vary. We have 3 MPA layers – please make sure you have the correct layer selected to find the MPA you are interested in:

  • WDPA Protected planet MPA: includes ALL MPAs from Protected Planet.
  • MPA No Take: includes ‘no take’ MPAs extracted from Protected Planet WDPA.
  • MPA Restricted Use: includes ‘restricted use’ MPAs extracted from Protected Planet WDPA.
