Curado Atlantic Rain Forest Protection

Mata do Curado is a 90 hectare Atlantic Rain Forest situated on the outskirts of Recife and some 20 kilometers from Olinda. The site was gifted to the Foundation in 2004 on condition that the Forest, which contains many rare species of flora and fauna, be protected as an eco-tourist facility.

Our brief is the recovery of the Mata Atlantica species with a replanting scheme. The existing buildings are to be restored to provide a Visitor Centre and accommodation for the existing tenants on the site.
