The provided maps (not to scale representative maps) indicate that the SPAs are significantly greater than <<1%. Appendix 1 - page 55 names the SPAs but does not provide a reference to the delineated source for theSPA boundaries and is not referenced in any other location in the MP.

I've been repeatedly asking this question.I find it incredible that there were so many submissions to the management plan yet no one pointed out this incongruity at the time. I went back through the wayback machine and the oldest copy of the management plan I could find was from 2005. It has the same maps as the current version on Parks' website:

The new FAQ either states that the 29 new SPAs add an additional 1.2% or that SPAs comprise a total of 1.2% of the park. I assume it's the former, but either way, it's more than <<1%.
