Observations The Convention on Wetlands is an intergovernmental treaty adopted in February 2, 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar. For this reason, this Convention is generally known as 'Ramsar Convention' and represents the first of the global treaties on conservation.
The area values were calculated from these cartograhic units and the Official Administrative Map of Portugal in PT-TM06-ETRS89 Reference System for Continente, in PTRA08 - UTM zone 28N Reference System for R. A. da Madeira and in ITRF93 - UTM -zone 26N and zone 25N for R. A. dos Açores. The 'Total' contains the RAMSAR Sites surface beyond included area in the official territorial units.

  • PROTECTED ÁREA:  Land area, inland water area or sea area in which biodiversity or other natural features are of special relevance due to their rarity, scientific, ecological, social or scenic value and require specific conservation and management measures, aiming to promote rational management of natural resources and the valuation of natural and cultural heritage, by regulating artificial interventions liable to degrade it, and which is assigned a legal protection status that is appropriate to the maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem and geological heritage services, as well as the enhancement of the landscape. It may be of a national, regional or local scope, depending on the interests to be safeguarded.
