CAPAD 2012

During early-2013 state and territory nature conservation agencies provided information on their terrestrial and marine protected areas. This information was compiled into CAPAD 2012.

CAPAD 2012 figures include interim protected areas. These are land parcels purchased or identified to become protected areas with binding agreements. Most are properties purchased through the National Reserve System Program which have an agreement to establish a protected area and are now in the process of getting formal recognition as a protected area.

GIS data is available via the Discover Information Geographically (DIG) website and access to the majority of the data is via the Creative Commons By Attribution licence model. The information is available in ArcGIS format.
