BirdLife Partners manage over 4 million ha of Protected Areas



More than half (63) of BirdLife Partners own or manage protected areas. In all, BirdLife Partner organisations have management responsibility for at least 1,553 protected areas, covering more than 4 million ha. The majority of these (83%) occur in Europe, but sites in Africa and South America tend, on average, to be much larger (e.g. Kaboré Tambi in Burkina Faso is 155,000 ha). Some partners own or manage up to 500 sites, with 16 Partners managing more than 20 sites and five with over 100.
