The map shows the values of Protected Connected land (ProtConn, % of ecoregion area covered by protected connected lands), calculated for a reference median species dispersal distance of 10 km, and of protected area coverage (% of ecoregion area under protection) for all the terrestrial ecoregions of the world (lakes and Antarctica excluded). ProtConn accounts for both the land area that can be reached within protected areas and that reachable through the connections between different protected areas.

Results of the Protected Connected (ProtConn) indicator and its fractions assessing the connectivity of protected areas (PAs) in all the world's terrestrial ecoregions as of June 2016. Results are provided for four median dispersal distances (1, 10, 30 and 100 km) encompassing the range of dispersal abilities of the large majority of terrestrial vertebrates.
