Protected Planet API

A simple API to access

world's protected areas

Are you in the right place?

Are you sure you need the API? Please consider using other formats (Shapefile, KML, CSV, GDB) we provide on Protected Planet.
If you are making a map or need to query very large amounts of protected areas, the ESRI Web Service is a better solution.

If you are unsure about the API capabilities, please visit the documentation.
