The North Coast of Paraiba up, the top, the conservationist flag and sustainable development of its natural resources.

The region focuses the largest number of protected areas of the State and wears, like no one else, the shirt of the green cause, boasting a brand, whose symbol is revealed in the figure of a great mosaic of ecosystems.

Translating in numbers, sixty-six kilometers of coast, that start on Lucena County, on the left bank of the Paraíba River, to the Guaju’s River Bar, on the border with Rio Grande do Norte, thirty-two kilometers are within environment protection areas.

The corridor of biodiversity extends itself as an ecological carpet, formed by the Mamanguape’s River APA, Jacaré de São Domingos indigenous land, Potiguara Indigenous Land, Uçá Crab Ecological Park, Private Reserve of the Cristal Global mining company, all of them open to public visitation, besides the Red River Woods Ecological Reserve, Guaribas Biological Reserve and the Redwood Ecological Station, restricted to researchers.

They are reminiscent areas of Atlantic Woods and associated ecosystems that thank the parsimony of the deforestation process and the presence of ecotourists that act as watchful supervisors of the environment.
