Established in 1992 by nine countries, the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) project aims "to conserve Arctic flora and fauna, their diversity and their habitats; to protect the Arctic ecosystem from threats; to seek to develop improved conservation management, laws, regulations and practices for the Arctic; to collaborate for more effective research, sustainable utilization and conservation; [and] to integrate Arctic interests into global conservation fora." To that end, the CAFF homepage describes its efforts in Arctic habitat and species conservation. Here users can access technical reports, publications, and project overviews. A beautiful color map of Protected Areas in the Circumpolar Arctic may be viewed or downloaded at the site.
