Figure D source code Overlap between wilderness areas and protected areas under IUCN categories I and II
In terms of overall number, Estonia, Norway, Slovakia and Sweden have the most protected areas classified as Category Ia and Ib, and Category II. Albania, Bulgaria, Estonia and Slovenia have the highest number of protected areas under Category III, but not all countries classify protected areas under this category. The United Kingdom is the only country within the 39 EEA member and collaborating countries that has no protected areas in categories I, II or III. No data available for Ireland.

Figure Share of the extent of designated areas in four EEA countries
This diagramme shows the range of surface area covered by nationally designated areas in four different and contrasting EEA member countries. Bulgaria has 80% of its protected areas under 100 ha and none over 1000ha whereas Greece has 94% of its protected areas above 100ha and 7% over 10 000 ha. Italy and Poland show the largest range of size of protected area between less than 1 ha and more than 10 000 ha

Figure Octet Stream Proportion of the surface area of nationally designated sites per type of ecosystem
These broad ecosystem‑types represent different ways of clustering CLC units, so there are overlaps between them. For instance, 'grasslands' and part of 'heaths and scrubs' are included in 'agro-ecosystems'. Similarly, 'lakes and rivers' are included in 'wetlands'. This is why the sum of the ecosystems is over 100 %.

Figure Changes in broad ecosystem‑types between 2000 and 2006 inside and outside nationally designated areas
This diagramme shows the change in area covered by broad ecosystem-types between 2000 and 2009 inside and outside nationally designated areas. The way how “broad ecosystem-types” are defined is described in the EU 2010 Biodiversity Baseline (
