Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests

The Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests (Portuguese: Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e das Florestas, I.P.), ICNF, is the responsible governmental body for the nature and forest policies, including the management of Protected Areas and State managed national, municipal and communal forests of mainland Portugal.

The ICNF was formed in 2012 by the merging of the Autoridade Florestal Nacional (and the Fundo Florestal Permanent) with the Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e Biodiversidade (Institute for Nature Conservation and Biodiversity), under Decree-Law 135/2012 (29 June 2012).
