The U.S. ranks 1st in protected areas

According to the World Resources Institute, in 2005 there were 54,312,000 hectares of protected land (national parks, wilderness areas, and nature reserves) in the United States, 13.7% of the world’s total. That was enough to make the United States rank first in that category.
