The Protected Areas of the Seafaring Confederation are the areas that have been assigned protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation because they are considered to be of significant cultural, natural or ecological importance.

Protected Cultural Areas

Protected Urban Sights

For a list of all Protected Urban Sights, see: List of lists of Protected Urban Sights of the Seafaring Confederation.

Protected Urban Sights are sights in urban settings which are considered worthy or protection, for instance because of their perceived aesthetic beauty or because of their centuries-long unchanged view. They are usually a combination of several buildings and/or streets with the direct surrounding areas included.

Protected Rural Sights

For a list of Protected Rural Sights, see: List of lists of Protected Rural Sights of the Seafaring Confederation.

Protected Rural Sights are rural settings which are considered worthy or protection, for instance because of their perceived aesthetic beauty or because of their centuries-long unchanged view. They generally consist of an area consisting of several buildings and fields and/or meadows which are then protected. They differ from National Landscapes in that they are far smaller, usually not exceeding a mere several hectares.

Protected Areas of Historical Significance

For a list of Protected Areas of Historical Significance, see: List of lists of Protected Areas of Historical Significance of the Seafaring Confederation.

Protected Areas of Historical Significance are areas which have housed or have been the location of a historically significant event or person, or a building which houses a scientifically and historically important object. They are usually one or a couple of buildings and their very direct surroundings.

Protected Historical Landmarks

For a list of Protected Historical Landmarks, see: List of lists of Protected Historical Landmarks of the Seafaring Confederation.

Protected Historical Landmarks are non-urban areas where historically significant events have taken place. They usually consist of several larger areas, but can also be as small as a couple of square metres.

Protected Natural Areas

National Parks

For a list of National Parks, see: National Parks of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Park is an area of natural significance that is appointed the second-highest form of areal protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation. It usually comprises a unique natural area with flora and fauna of outstanding quality and that would otherwise be threatened to be exploited or taken over by agriculture. They are open to visitors and can be exploited for managed tourism only. All other forms of exploitation, especially exploitation that requires destruction of aspects of the National Park, is explicitly forbidden.

National Forests

For a list of National Forests, see: National Forests of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Forest is an area that is made up of forests and woodlands for at least 85%. They are assigned the third highest level of protection by the government of Seafaring Confederation, which means that controlled exploitation of the area is allowed, albeit within strict margins as set out by the Law on Protected Areas. They are open to visitors.

National Grasslands

For a list of National Grasslands, see: National Grasslands of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Grassland is an area that is made up of grasslands and meadows for at least 85%. They are assigned the third highest level of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation, which means that managed exploitation of the area is allowed, albeit within strict margins. This exploitation consists mostly of agricultural use in that cattle and sheep are allowed to graze on the lands. They are open to visitors.

National Moorlands

For a list of National Moorlands, see: National Moorlands of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Moorland is an area that is covered by moorland for at least 85%. They are assigned the third highest level of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation, which means that managed exploitation is allowed, albeit within strict margins. This exploitation mostly consists of controlled small-scale mining and agricultural use by letting cattle and sheep graze and horses run freely. They are open to visitors.

National Maritime Areas

For a list of National Maritime Areas, see: National Maritime Areas of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Maritime Area is an area that consists of a sea for at least 85%. They are assigned the third highest level of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation, which means that managed exploitation is allowed, albeit within strict margins. This exploitation usually consists of small-scale local and traditional fishing. They are open to visitors.

National Dunelands

For a list of National Dunelands, see: National Dunelands of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Duneland is an area that is covered by dunes or sand for at least 85%. They are assigned the third highest level of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation, which means managed exploitation is allowed. However, due to the rather commercial uselessness of these sandy areas, there is only few actual exploitation in place. The exploitation that is in place in several regions, however, is the cultivation of small patches of cranberries and common sea-buckthorn. They are open to visitors.

National Landscapes

For a list of National Landscapes, see: National Landscapes of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Landscape is a landscape of natural significance that is appointed the second highest form of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation. It usually comprises an area in which the landscape is still considered pure and mostly untouched, which normally alludes to forms of smale-scale agriculture and the like. It differs from National Parks in that in National Landscapes the focus is more on the residents and the surrounding areas rather than the nature itself, focusing instead on the maintenance of the flora and fauna unique to smale-scale agriculture. They are open to visitors.

Protected Ecological Areas

National Wildlife Reserves

For a list of National Wildlife Reserves, see: National Wildlife Reserves of the Seafaring Confederation.

A National Wildlife Reserve is an ecological reservation which is granted the highest form of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation, which means that to be able to enter the reserve, permission must first be asked to the Department of Nature. Permission will not be granted for recreational use or for touristic reasons, and entrance must always be under the control of an official guide.

National Wildlife Reserves are set up for the preservation of unique forms of fauna or for critical habitats for certain animals. They are not open to visitors.

National Flora Reserves

A National Flora Reserve is an ecological reservation which is granted the highest form of protection by the government of the Seafaring Confederation, which means that to be able to enter the reserve, permission must first be asked to the Department of Nature.

Protected Ecological Corridors are set up to connect Natural and Ecological Protected Areas so that exchange of specimens can occur. They are usually set around the migratory paths of major species, as to ensure that they can move around freely and uninterruptedly.
