The World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) is the most comprehensive global database of marine and terrestrial protected areas, updated on a monthly basis, and is one of the key global biodiversity data sets being widely used by scientists, businesses, governments, International secretariats and others to inform planning, policy decisions and management.

Obtained from data downloaded from www.iucn.redlist.org using data filtering ( extinct, critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable)

Dataset regarding 'Seamounts' - peaks that rise over 1,000 m above the seafloor. Seamount chains occur in all three major ocean basins, with the Pacific having the most number and most extensive seamount chains.

a mapping representation of active and passive continental margins, oceanic plate boundaries and mid ocean spreading ridges

statistical records as of 2014 on the distribution of seamount. Accordingly, there are more seamounts in the Pacific Ocean than in the Atlantic, and their distribution can be described as comprising several elongate chains of seamounts superimposed on a more or less random background distribution (Craig and Sandwell)
