                                           The Chart
  The chart shows cumulative number of nationally and internationally designated protected areas
(marine and terrestrial) from 1911-2011. Only protected areas that are designated and have a known
                         year of establishment have been included in this chart.


Term             Explanation
Designated       Designated protected areas are those that are recognized, supported, and
                 designated by national/international legislation and/or authority.
Year of          Year in which protected area is designated. Not all protected areas in the WDPA
establishment    have a known year of establishment, therefore approximately 43,674 protected
                 areas have been excluded from the growth chart.
