Abstract


Hunting wildlife is forbidden by Brazilian federal legislation, although it is tolerated in specific situations. the activity is important as a source of protein to rural populations. the objective of this study is to describe hunting in four communities of Amanã Sustainable Development Reserve. Structured interviews were carried out with hunters themselves, as well as other members of the communities (n=238). In addition to that, a survey of hunted game was also carried out during the period of this study. In six months of monitoring of the four communities, 373 individuals were harvested; totalling 5,932.75 Kg. Mammals were the main group hunted, representing 91,42% of the total weight produced in hunting events. the results of the study indicate that the species most susceptible to hunting are Tayassu pecari, Dasyprocta fuliginosa, Cuniculus paca, Tapirus terrestres, Alouatta seniculus, Mazama americana and Mazama gouazoubira, the river turtles of genus Podocnemis, and also the Cracidae and Anatidae.
