Protected Nature Areas that are part of the PAFF program

The PAFF program currently recognizes 100 nature parks. 93 of those are located in The Netherlands (PA) and 7 are located on the Dutch Caribean Islands (PJ).

We use the WCPA (World Commission on Protected Areas) definitions of the nature areas. Note that the perimeters might differ from the definitions used by local park management. Note also that we have combined a few smaller areas into larger areas under one reference.

So always check the perimeters on the Google Map and / or KMZ file (below) before you go out to activate a park. We have provided some extra information on locations from where you might be able to activate the reserve on the Google Map. Note that in any case it is the responsibility of the activator to find a suitable location within the defined perimeter and to supply proof of the location used.

 You will find a Google map showing the locations and perimeters of the nature parks in PA via:
Note that we have had to split the maps due to limitations in the online maps of Google. In the table below you can find downloadable KMZ files for the individual nature reserves.
