Where are Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) in Australia?

Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) in Australia are voluntarily dedicated by Indigenous groups on Indigenous owned or managed land or sea country. They are recognised by the Australian Government as an important part of the National Reserve System, protecting the nation's biodiversity for the benefit of all Australians. There are currently over 70 dedicated IPAs across 65 million hectares accounting for more than 40% of the National Reserve System's total area.
