Description

more
There are three classes of Totally Protected Areas (TPAs) in Sarawak: National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries and Nature Reserves. Some of the TPAs are gazetted, while others remain ungazetted and are classified as 'proposed'.All boundaries are from Sarawak Forestry Department (SFD) maps. Three principal map sources were used: a high-resolution SFD map of northern Sarawak from February 2010; a high-resolution SFD map of central Sarawak from 2010; and low-resolution SFD maps of National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries and Nature Reserves available on the SFD website and accessed in April 2014. TPAs which are entirely over water are not included.The status of each protected area given in this data set is based on the list of gazetted TPAs as of 31st December 2014 given on the website of the Sarawak Forestry Corporation (accessed November 2015), and the Sarawak Forestry Department Annual Report of 2012.
