Moving from the breathtaking fjords of western Norway to Australia’s only active volcanoes, touring 150,000 of the world’s protected areas from an armchair is now possible with the click of a mouse.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has joined forces with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to create protectedplanet.net – an interactive, social media-based website that provides in-depth information on both the leading lights and hidden gems of the conservation world.
