Join a birdwatching excursion

Join our birdwatching excursions from the lodge to a variety of Atlantic Forest habitats off-reserve, in search of over 100 species of birds not present at REGUA. The focus of our excursions is finding Atlantic Forest endemics including Restinga Antwren, Grey-winged Cotinga, Itatiaia Thistletail and Three-toed Jacamar. We also organise night-birding excursions to look for Giant Snipe, owls, potoos and other nocturnal birds. More »


Make a donation to REGUA

With only 7% of the original forested area remaining, the Atlantic Forest of South America is one of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth, but also one the most biodiverse! REGUA protects over 9,000 hectares of forest and has the opportunity to purchase more land protect more forest, but we have to act fast as encroaching urbanisation is rapidly increasing land prices. Please support REGUA by making a donation. Donate »
