Résumé partiel
100 kilometers southwest from Lamarque (Rio Negro-Argentina), in proximity to Bajo Santa Rosa and Salinas de Trapalcó, there are very rich fossil deposits that give the area a high potential for geopaleontological investigations. The field work carried out by different groups of scientists have allowed to increase and diversify the paleontological heritage of Rio Negro province. In the area there is a succession of Upper Cretaceous sediments including a lower unit of continental origin (Allen Formation) and an upper marine (Jagüel Formation). Among the most important discovery there are remains of marine reptiles, dinosaurs, turtles, sphenodontians and eggs of dinosaurs. In 2009 it was created the protected natural area Bajo Santa Rosa and Salinas de Trapalcó in order to preserve rocks and sediments with dinosaur eggs and other marine and continental fossils Upper Cretaceous. The reference area covers an area of 460,000 ha in which predominates semi-arid landscapes with characteristics of the mountain biome. Although creating the protected area was an important legal instrument for protecting the paleontological and geological heritage it must be considered that it still lacks other necessary components for governance and administration. The research was carried out from the qualitative paradigm in order to describe and understand social reality in the natural environment. It tries to understand tourism as a social, economic, strategic and essential phenomenon, interacting in a natural area. While currently there is an incipient and growing touristic use within the protected area, it is considered that there is insufficient knowledge about the effects and impact of tourism on the territory, local resident and in relation to the Geopaleontological heritage conservation ; therefore, it is required that this issue should be studied in order to increase the degree of scientific knowledge. The main objective of this work was to develop a proposal for land use and environmental management for public tourist use in geosites interest in order to generate contributions to geopaleontological heritage conservation in situ of the protected area Bajo Santa Rosa and Trapalcó.
