Summary/Abstract: Economic relationships lead to the determination of behavior towards resources, including those related to biodiversity. Human interventions are not negative only by making maximum use of biological resources, but also through activities that do not directly target these categories. The main ways humans contribute to the degradation of biodiversity are: modification and destruction of habitats, voluntary and involuntary transfer of species, overexploitation in all areas, starting with resources. The purpose of this research is to highlight the importance of protected areas in the world, as well as in Romania, highlighting economic activities that help to preserve and protect nature and the natural environment, activities that are included in management plans for sustainable development.
