Rights of Use

A considerable amount of the Marine Protected Areas data used in this database was derived from MPA Global, a global database of MPAs developed by Louisa Wood, Sea Around Us Project, University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre, as part of her (currently) ongoing PhD thesis, and in collaboration with WWF and UNEP-WCMC. MPA Global was developed from the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA), maintained by UNEP-WCMC, and the data in MPA Global has been used to update the WDPA. Please refer to www.mpaglobal.org and www.unep-wcmc.org for additional information on these MPAs. Any further use or publication of this data must include this acknowledgement.
