DOPA Explorer 2.0 is coming soon!

We are currently working on DOPA Explorer 2.0, a new web interface assessing biodiversity, ecosystems and pressures for all protected areas at least as large as 50 km2. DOPA Explorer 2.0 will provide new web services, indicators and up to date information for more than 20 000 protected areas. Expected release: end 2017.

Meet us in Cartagena (Colombia) and Boston (USA) to discuss our work?

Discussions around the DOPA will be held in Cartagena (Colombia) in July 2017 at the 28th International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB 2017, http://conbio.org/mini-sites/iccb-2017) and in Boston (USA) in August 2017 at the International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G 2017 http://2017.foss4g.org/).
Join and meet us there!

Protected Connected land (%) and protected area coverage (%) for the terrestrial ecoregions of the world as of June 2016

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.

World Ecoregion Connectivity (ProtConn) and Protection Statistics as of June 2016

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.
