The following is a list of protected areas in Brazil considered "Habitat/species management area" under the IUCN Protected Area Management Categories (category IV). That is, protected areas to protect particular species or habitats and whose management reflects this priority. Many category IV protected areas will need regular, active interventions to address the requirements of particular species or to maintain habitats, but this is not a requirement of the category.

This list is drawn from the 2009 World Database on Protected Areas:
