The ‘RPPN Rio do Brasil’ is an environmental reserve with 975 hectares of preserved Atlantic Forest, located in Porto Seguro, Bahia. The area is home to thousands of fauna and flora species. Over 250 birds have been cataloged already, among them the Chaffinch parrot (Amazona Rhodocorytha), an endangered species, and the extremely rare Margarette hummingbird (Phaethornis Margarettae).
RPPN promotes environmental education activities with local residents and visitors and it is part of “Futuri – Regenerative Tourism Alliance”, a network of local entities that strives to develop tourism based on more sustainable and regenerative practices, respecting and strengthening nature, local culture and economy, always with a focus on people.
OCanto is proud to be part of a group whose mission is to develop the seamless ecosystem in which it operates, in order to safeguard the country's natural, historical and cultural heritage. In synergy with regenerative tourism operations, we invest in conservation areas, ecological corridors, buffer zones and areas dedicated to sustainable production activities, generating value for the land where we are present.
