Dear Guests,

Welcome to the website of the National Administration for Conservation Areas – ANAC.

We are delighted to announce the beginning of a new era of communication with the public.

With a friendly visual approach, the website aims to deepen the space for sharing information between ANAC, Partners and General Society, in an interactive and effective way

In this platform, we place at disposal several items of information about the conservation areas and wildlife, as well as the documents that guide our actions. We provide endless possibilities to navigate through the country’s conservation, including links to get to other national counterparts.

For those who wish to do tourism, you’ll find in the website ways and reasons that will make you want to experience adventures in natural, well-preserved and stunning places.

Our purpose is to contribute to the increase of the environmental awareness, particularly regarding the biodiversity conservation and the massification of knowledge about the importance of the needed natural resources for our social-economical sustainable development.

This page is way for every one of us to contribute for the conservation of ecosystems, on behalf of a brighter future for the next generations.

We are ANAC, celebrating the Wildlife!
