ASEAN Heritage Parks (AHP) represent efforts to conserve areas of particular biodiversity importance or exceptional uniqueness by member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. ASEAN environmental ministers signed the ASEAN Declaration on Heritage Parks on 18 December 2003. ASEAN member countries agreed that, "common cooperation is necessary to conserve and manage AHP for the development and implementation of regional conservation and management action plans as well as regional mechanisms complementary to national efforts to implement conservation measures."[1]

The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) serves as the secretariat of the ASEAN Heritage Parks Programme. Its vision is "An ASEAN region whose biodiversity is conserved, sustainably managed and used, and equitably shared for the well-being of its peoples."[2]

Forty-nine ASEAN Heritage Parks have been designated as of 2019.[3] Five sites are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Kinabalu National Park of Malaysia; Lorentz National Park of West Papua; Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park of the Philippines; Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary of the Philippines; and Khao Yai National Park of Thailand.
