IA: Strict Nature Reserve (outstanding unaltered
ecosystems/species; scientific research/monitoring permitted)
IB: Wilderness Area (large unaltered/slightly altered protected
areas; no permanent/significant habitation)
II: National Park (managed mainly for ecosystem protection and
recreation/tourism; may allow product removal/habitation)

X: No Overlap (percent of IBA area that is not overlapped by a

There may be multiple, overlapping protected area polygons within an IBA;
therefore, percentages across categories do not sum to 100%.
