ABSTRACT O trabalho discute a implantação e implementação de políticas públicas para o setor ambiental no Brasil, no período compreendido entre 1970 e 2000. Nesse contexto, realiza um estudo de caso do Projeto Tartarugas Marinhas (Projeto Tamar), apresentando uma análise comparativa das formas de intervenção em duas comunidades pesqueiras do litoral brasileiro: Praia do Forte (BA) e Regência (ES). Por meio de uma abordagem qualitativa, foram reconstruídos discursos e postos em diálogo para a compreensão. Constatou-se que o Projeto Tamar apresenta formas discursivas que se apóiam no modelo de sustentabilidade causal, isto é, o econômico viabiliza o ambiental. Neste âmbito, verificou-se que a lei e o discurso racional-legal são utilizados como estratégia de dominação em Praia do Forte, enquanto o carisma é parte do tipo ideal de dominação em Regência. Viu-se que essa diferenciação não ocorreu por acaso, mas é fruto de processos de resistência e conflitos que emergiram nas duas comunidades de pescadores e que está relacionada com suas especificidades socioculturais, especificamente quanto à forma como apresentam suas representações sociais e simbólicas sobre a pesca e a caça da tartaruga marinha. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ABSTRACT The present work discusses the implantation and implementation of political policies for the environmental sector in Brazil during the period between 1970 and 2000. In that context, it performs a study of case of the Sea Turtle Project (Tamar Project), presenting a comparative analysis of the forms of intervention in two fishing communities at the Brazilian cost: Praia do Forte (in the State of Bahia) and Regência (in the State of Espírito Santo). Discourses were reconstructed and put into discussion in order to be comprehended, through a qualitative approach. It was verified that the Tamar Project presents discursive forms which lean on the causal sustainability model, which is the economic side makes the environmental side viable. Within that framework, it could be verified that the law and legal-rational discourse are being used as a strategy of domination in Praia do Forte, while the charisma is part of the ideal type of domination in Regência. It was also noticed that this difference does not occur by accident, but it is a consequence of the process of resistance and conflicts which emerged in both fishing communities and is related to their social-cultural specificities, specifically in the way they show their social and symbolic representations about the fishing and hunting of sea turtles.

    ABSTRACT: For many millennia humans and reptiles have interacted, but the attitude of humans towards these animals has depended on culture, environment, and personal experience. At least 719 reptile species are known to occur in Brazil and about 11% of this fauna has been exploited for many different purposes, including bushmeat, leather, ornamental and magic/religious uses, and as folk medicines. Brazil can therefore serve as an interesting case study for better understanding reptile use by human societies, and the present paper catalogues some of the reptile species being used in Brazil and discusses implications for their conservation. A literature review indicated that 81 reptile species are culturally important in this country, with 47 (58%) species having multiple uses, 54 being used for medicinal purposes, 38 as food, 28 for ornamental or decorative purposes, 20 used in magic/religious practices, 18 as pets, and 40 are commonly killed when they come into contact with humans. Regarding their conservation status, 30 (37.5%) are included on State's Red List, Brazilian Red List or the IUCN Red List. There are many forms of interaction between reptiles and humans in Brazil-although most of them are quite negative in terms of wildlife conservation-which reinforces the importance of understanding such uses and interactions in the context of protecting reptiles in Brazil. A better understanding of the cultural, social, and traditional roles of these reptiles is fundamental to establishing management plans for their sustainable use.
