Amazonas is a Brazilian state of continental territorial extension, composed of a rich biodiversity and priceless natural resources for the maintenance of the Amazonian biome. Its incalculable wealth is an asset for the evasion of biological material, mainly by the audit deficiency of the Government that still benefits the polluting agent. This article presents a bibliographical review on biopiracy, water pollution and the mismanagement of solid waste, three major sources of environmental degradation, whose practice is very widespread in the State of Amazonas. The article aims to analyze potential environmental crimes practiced in the State of Amazonas and the difficulty that environmental organizations have in punishing them properly.

As for the Methodology, the inductive method was used with reference, category, operational concept and bibliographic research techniques.
