Sustainable Use Conservation Units

Eco Adventure Tours / Brazil – Sustainable use conservation units were created with the objective of combining the conservation of biodiversity, compatible with the rational use of the natural resources, while respecting the legislation that applies to such resources. The following conservation units (IUCN - management category IV - VI) fulfill this purpose:

         • areas of relevant ecological interest (IV),

         • environmental protection areas (V),

         • extractive / fauna / sustainable development reserves (VI).

According to a dossier about the Atlantic Rainforest published by RMA in 2001, approximately 230 (53%) of the 436 Brazilian sustainable use conservation units are located within the Mata Atlântica Biosphere Reserve – Brazil Travel / Ecotourism.
