A protected area is defined as an area of land and/or sea especially dedicated to the protection and maintenance of biological diversity, and of natural and associated cultural resources, and managed through legal and effective means. (Legal or effective means refers to the objectives of the Act under which an area is designated and implies security of tenure, generally revoked only by a state or national parliamentary process; or areas covered by a legally adopted plan of management.)
