Description: Great Lakes Protected Areas were extracted from the Marine Protected Area (MPA) inventory. The MPA Inventory is a comprehensive catalog that provides detailed information for existing marine protected areas in the United States. The inventory provides geospatial boundary information (in polygon format) and classification attributes that seek to define the conservation objectives, protection level, governance and related management criteria for all sites in the database. The comprehensive inventory of federal, state and territorial MPA sites provides governments and stakeholders with access to information to make better decisions about the current and future use of place-based conservation. The information also will be used to inform the development of the national system of marine protected areas as required by Executive Order 13158.The Protected Planet World Database on Protected Areas was also used to collect Canadian data in 2012. The database allows users to search protected areas from around the world including wilderness areas, national parks, and heritage sites. NOAA Marine Protected Areas Center in joint effort with the US Department of the Interior. One additional MPA (Grand Traverse Bay Bottomland Preserve) was added to this file in 2012 at the Institute for Fisheries Research (IFR). In 2012 at IFR, two Canadian MPAs were added to this file from the Protected Planet website. Also in 2012, at IFR, the North Lake Trout Refuge, South Lake Trout Refuge, Drummond Island Refuge, and Six Fathom Lake Trout Refuge were added the file. The Lake Huron Six Fathom Bank Refuge was originally digitized in 2000 by the Lake Huron GIS Project, of the Michigan DNR Roscommon Fisheries Division. The Lake Huron Drummond Island Refuge was digitized in 2000 by Michigan DNR, Fisheries Division.
