The Rio da Casca Ecological Station (Portuguese: Estação Ecológica do Rio da Casca) is an ecological station in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. It protects a partly deforested area of savanna.

Location[edit]

The Rio da Casca Ecological Station (ESEC) is divided between the municipalities of Chapada dos Guimarães (76.61%), Cuiabá (10.84%) and Campo Verde (12.52%) in the state of Mato Grosso.[1] The ESEC has two parts, one with an area of 3,329 hectares (8,230 acres) and the other with an area of 205 hectares (510 acres).[2] The total area is 3,534 hectares (8,730 acres).[1] It lies to the east of the MT-450 state highway and is south of the BR-251 federal highway.[3]

History[edit]

The Rio da Casca Ecological Station was created by state governor decree 6.437 of 27 May 1994. The consultative council was created on 15 December 2014.[4]

Environment[edit]

The ESEC is just over 87% savannah, and about 13% contact between savannah and seasonal forest. It overlaps about 7% with the Chapada dos Guimarães Environmental Protection Area.[5] The ESEC was about 65% deforested at time of creation, and since then has lost a further 4% of forest coverage.[6] The Casca River, a tributary of the Roncador River, runs through the ESEC from south to north.[3]
