Protected areas are primarily established to protect biological, geological and landscape diversity and ecological processes. This is to be obtained through conservation and sustainable use, and in such a way that the environment provides a basis for human activity, culture, health and well-being, now and in the future, including a basis for Sami culture. The protected areas are managed either by the County Governors, the municipalities or by designated National Park Boards.

Important information
The data model was changed in June 2018. Since then any object is published as an area. Former point objects has been transformed to small areas (circle) with radius 10 meters. These circular objects must be regarded as an indication of the designated area, and not as a legally binding border of the site.
