The following is a list of protected areas in Brazil considered "Protected areas with sustainable use of natural resources" under the IUCN Protected Area Management Categories (category VI). That is, protected areas which conserve ecosystems and habitats, together with associated cultural values and traditional natural resource management systems. They are generally large, with most of the area in a natural condition, where a proportion is under sustainable natural resource management and where low-level non-industrial use of natural resources compatible with nature conservation is seen as one of the main aims of the area.

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