Protected Areas

Impressively 21% of the Brazilian Amazon’s territory is legally protected on conservation units. These protected areas are separated in federal, state or municipal areas and, by Brazilian law, are primarily divided in units of Integral Protection and Sustainable Use. Added to the indigenous territories and reserves the totality of protected areas goes up to 40% of Amazon’s entire area. 

The Integral Protection areas have the basic objective of nature preservation, setting human interferences as far as possible from them. There are several categories: some are more restrictive like Ecological Stations and Biological Reserves (only research allowed) and others consent the indirect use of natural resources (tourism activities) like National Parks. None of those permit people living inside the perimeters of the areas.


The Sustainable Use areas aim to make compatible conservation and use of natural resources as ecotourism.  APA (Environment Protection Area), FLONA (National Forest), RESEX (Extractive Reserve), RDS (Sustainable Development Reserve) and RPPN (Natural Private Protected Areas) are some of the categories from sustainable use protected areas in Brazil. The most important feature from those areas is the possibility of working and involving local people and communities, like in Amazon ecotourism sustainable programs.


Even establishing large protected areas in the Brazil Amazon, the government faces serious problems on managing and monitoring these areas, as the financial resources seems to be always few to maintain the costs and invest on each of those areas.
