Our Work

WCPA’s strength comes from our incredible network of members around the world. With a membership of over 2,500 diverse protected and conserved areas experts spanning 140 countries, our Commission draws on many of the brightest individuals in the world to produce knowledge products and advocate for protected areas.


Members engage in any number of projects taken on by commissions, including work in our Regions, Specialist Groups, and Task Forces, or our ongoing WCPA Publications.
