NaPALIS Protected Areas
DOC Administered Protected Areas
This Protected Area Layer contains land and marine areas, most of which are administered by the Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai (DOC) and are protected by the Conservation, Reserves, National Parks, Marine Mammal and Marine Reserves Acts. All of the areas have been identified spatially. The attributes in this dataset are derived from the National Property and Land Information System (NaPALIS), which is a centralised database for all DOC and LINZ administered land.
The boundaries for most protected areas are derived from the Landonline Primary Parcel(s). In some cases, the boundaries may have been based on unsurveyed parcels defined to varying degrees of accuracy. As such please note that the boundaries are indicative only.
The dataset includes reserves but it is not a complete set. Privately owned reserves are excluded from the dataset as they are not crown land. Also, the dataset does not contain a complete list of reserves “vested” in Local Authorities or “controlled and managed” by other organisations. The dataset is continually being updated however as errors or omissions are discovered and new land transactions are completed.
The Department cannot guarantee the accuracy of the infromation but rather it represents best endeavours to maintain an accurate record of conservation land.
A table of Protected Area associations to Primary Parcels is published in the [LDS here](https://data.linz.govt.nz/table/3561-protected-area-parcel-association/).
This layer shows the location and legal status of DOC protected areas from NaPALIS.

This layer sources its information from the NaPALIS system, which includes DOC Protected Areas. Data in the layer is updated through internal processes including acquisition or disposal of land. In some instances data may be out of date or the incorrect parcel identified. Protected Areas are linked to corresponding primary parcel(s) where available, or in some instances to unsurveyed parcels when the boundaries have been identified in land status checks and are made up of part parcels. Land is managed under the Conservation Act 1987, Reserves Act 1977, National Parks Act 1980, Marine Reserves Act 1971, Marine Mammals Protection Act 1978 as well as other legislation.
