  3. The total area protected (hectares and percent), with overlaps removed, of land and waters in each of B.C.'s ecoregions.

  4. The area (hectares and percent) of land and waters in each of B.C.'s biogeoclimatic zones covered by protected areas, broken down by designation.

  5. The total area protected (hectares and percent), with overlaps removed, of land and waters in each of B.C.'s biogeoclimatic zones.
