Protected Area

Regions protected by environmental legislation on land, freshwater, and marine waters.

Any and all areas delimited on public or private lands or in fresh or salt waters that have a special protection regime or use supported by federal, state, or municipal environmental legislation. These items include National Parks, Private Natural Heritage Reserves and other Conservation Units (UCs), Indigenous and Quilombola Lands, Military Areas, Legal Reserves, and Permanent Preservation Areas. While some of these territories are more dedicated to the maintenance of natural ecosystems and biodiversity, others are home to traditional cultures and populations or are equally focused on the conservation of environmental resources and services. 

Synonyms:

 protected zone
