President Jair Bolsonaro said this Tuesday that he plans to introduce a decree that will change the protection status of the Tamoios Ecological Station in Angra dos Reis (RJ). Bolsonaro received a R$10,000 fine for fishing in this protected area in 2012. IBAMA later reversed the penalty.

“Our country deserves a Cancun, and we can, and we are working on this in the Angra region. It just will depend on a presidential decree,” explained the president.

. . .

“The Tamoios Ecological Station doesn’t preserve anything, and since it is a rich area, there is the potential to bring in billions of (reads) each year through tourism. This is being stopped because of a lack of an objective vision,” the president said.

The president owns a house in the Mambucaba Vila Histórica, wherein 2018, in an interview with Folha, he shared his plans to transform the area into a tourist haven.
