The first authoritative online resource on marine habitats

Ocean+ Habitats is an evolving tool that provides insight into the known extent, protection and other statistics of ecologically and economically important ocean habitats, such as corals, mangroves, seagrasses and saltmarshes.

Through Ocean+ Habitats, we aim to record the current state of our evolving knowledge on the location and protection of these habitats, with monthly updates drawn from the World Database on Protected Areas.

This website will be expanded in the coming year to pilot national and Regional Seas pages; we welcome contributions and collaborations.

For access to the underlying spatial datasets, please visit the Ocean Data Viewer. For more information on the Ocean+ initiative, please visit the main Ocean+ website.
