This is an amazing database that I only recently found out about. It is the new website for the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) that is very user friendly. It lets you explore where protected areas are anywhere in the world. I found it to be a nice way to find local nearby parks I did not even know about. The picture below is a screen shot of Belize and the surrounding area. It allows you to zoom in and see the name and type of almost any protected area on earth. Users can also upload pictures of visits to them. It is a great resource and a noble mission allowing for accurate numbers of how much of the earth’s biodiversity is protected.
