AREAS OF CONSERVATION

Created with the purpose of protecting and maintaining the fauna and flora resources, the tourist, and the hydro wealth existing in these areas, the Areas of Conservation of Tocantins State are vast in extension and enclose Amazon biomes (Cantao) and the savannah.

The parks are geographical areas delimited with specimens of fauna and flora. At these parks it is possible to have scientific researches, develop ecotourism, generate activities for nature sustainability and perform environment education for nearby communities.

STATE PARK OF CANTÃO

Located on the margins of the Araguraia River, Cantao is positioned in an area of transition between the Amazon biomes and the savannah. Together with the National Park of the Araguaia, the Indigenous Park of the Araguaia and the Apa Bananal Island, Cantao forms a mosaic of preserved areas with more that three million hectares, of which Cantao was the first state park created. It is also known for its more than 800 cataloged lakes that collaborate for the formation of aquatic communities and hold a natural sanctuary for fish. The unit also undergoes seasonal flooding, which makes it similar to a swamp.

STATE PARK OF JALAPÃO

Located in the Mateiros County, the State Park of Jalapao is internationally known for its rare and exuberant landscape which is a combination of a desert in midst of an oasis of water, since the region has innumerous water streams that make up the hydro resource of the state. The unit is known for its many tourist attractions with “fervedouros” (bubbling water), water falls, and large rivers that permit adventure tourism. Jalapao also boasts of a rich and diverse flora, made up of giant anteaters, pampas-dears, capybara, ema birds and even jaguars. Its soil is fragile and sandy, with dunes, planes and trails.

STATE PARK OF LAJEADO

Situated at the Mountain of Lajeado, the park has 9.931 hectares in the Palmas County area. The flora is made up of small curved trees, characteristic of the savannah biome. With great hydro capacity, the preservation of this area is of great importance for the safeguarding of the water supply for Palmas (Tocantins’ capital).

The parks are geographical areas delimited with specimens of fauna and flora. At these parks it is possible to have scientific researches, develop ecotourism, generate activities for nature sustainability and perform environment education for nearby communities.
