In order to protect animal and plant species that are rare or sensitive to disturbance, the County administrative board or the municipality can create wildlife sancturies with the help of Chapter 7 Section 12 in the Environmental Code. According to the regulations, the general public and in certain cases even the landowner is not allowed access to the area during certain times of the year. The regulations can also limit the rights to hunting and fishing. The most common motive for wildlife sancturies is to protect bird nesting areas during breeding season (bird sanctuaries) or resting places for seals (seal sanctuaries). Wildlife sancturies only regulate access, hunting and fishing but do not involve changes in the use of land in the same way that nature reserves, national parks and habitat protection areas protect the natural environment.

Regulations that prohibit access can also be in the form of a regulation about national parks, nature reserves, cultural reserves, conservation areas or natural monuments. The areas that are affected by prohibited access in this way are not presented in this table.
Areas for musk oxen: The areas Myskoxar, Tännäs (Jämtland County) and Myskoxarna (Dalarna County) are not included in the statistics. Prohibited access refers to the protection zone around the animals.

Number of
The number of counties cannot be summed up to the number in the country, because some areas overlap several counties.

Due to mergers, the number of wildlife sanctuaries in Skåne decreased in 2008 compared to the previous year.

The difference in the number of wildlife sanctuaries in 2013 compared with previous years is partly due to a new calculation method. In the basic register, several objects can be grouped and be given a joint ID, because they are included in the same decision. Before 2013, the number of areas was based on the number of IDs. As of 2013, the number of individual objects is used instead.
year
2012
Changes in the statistics are partly due to quality improvements of data.
