This article aims to analyze the performance of the of Public Attorney in defense of the environment in protected areas located in the Central Corridor of the Atlantic Forest in Bahia. The methodology adopted is qualitative, performing a case study from the techniques of analysis of documents and testimonials given in interviews by the Justice Prosecutors involved in this study. The documents examined were the extrajudicial procedures (Conduct Adjustment Agreement), raised in counties between 2004-2006, and the reports produced by these Justice Prosecutors in the training workshops. In order to produce the interviews we had utilized the Oral History as a technique. For treatment of the collection of interviews we used the collective subject discourse. The retrieval and the analysis of the testimonies by the Justice Prosecutors, who are stationed in counties with protected areas, showed that these professionals do not clearly dominate the objectives and purposes of different conservation strategies. We conclude that this fact has consequences on the public attorney’s actions in the environmental protection. There aredeficiencies in infrastructure, personnel and equipment that restrict the institutional activities. The terms agreed upon in the regions studied in the period had no concrete effects to conservation.
