Natural reserves

The Foundation believes that knowing and maintaining natural areas and their species in balance is the most effective way to conserve biodiversity.

For this reason, it is responsible for the creation and maintenance of two Private Natural Heritage Reserves (RPPNs).

Located in the most threatened biomes (Atlantic Forest and Cerrado), it aims to make them a reference in management and relationship with the community.

The management of our natural reserves today guarantees the preservation of 11 thousand hectares.

Discover our Nature Reserves with the senior manager of Biodiversity Economics, André Ferretti.
