Protected Areas


  

Created by the Regional Legislative Decree n.º 19/2008/A, São Miguel Natural Park (PNISM) includes all the 23 classified protected areas of the island (from Nature Reserves to Natural  Monuments and Protected Landscapes) considering their natural values in a perspective of balance between nature conservation and promotion of economic activity  through the sustainable use of resources. The Natural Park constitutes a management unit of these protected areas and is included in the Regional Protected Areas Network of the Azores Autonomous Region.
