Our Projects

Learn how Floresta Viva has been constantly improving the reality of the region through sustainable projects that mobilize the local population, companies, public agencies and volunteers.



One of IFV’s flagship projects, which today is characterized as its main line of action, is the Research Project on Rare and Endangered Species of Southern Bahia.

The project consists of executing a Degraded Area Recovery Plan (PRAD) between the years 2019-2022, focusing on the remaining vegetation


Ecosystem Restoration and Cocoa Cultivation on the Southern Bahia Coast - Brown University

Large-scale restoration of the Atlantic Forest is a process that requires knowledge of farming dynamics, as the vast majority of areas available for restoration are found in land used for agriculture and pasture.



Paubrasilia echinata, more precisely known as pau brasil, is the most emblematic tree of Brazilian flora.

Reforestation in PESC and region
