Arches National Park
World Database on Protected Areas

IBAT is an important cost recovery mechanism and IBAT subscriptions directly support the update and maintenance of three of the world’s most authoritative global datasets: the World Database on Protected Areas, the World Database of Key Biodiversity Areas, and the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

The annual cost of updating and maintaining these datasets is estimated at US$6.5 million. An additional US$114 million will be needed to reach baselines of data coverage for global biodiversity and conservation knowledge products.

Thank you for your support.
