Rich in natural beauty, Canudos is also one of the most popular destinations for those who enjoy watching birds in their habitats. 20km from the city, it is possible to find the only population of Lear’s Macaw in the world. It is located in the Raso da Catarina Ecoregion, which houses the dormitories of the species considered one of the symbols of the biodiversity of the sertão.
To start the construction of the Canudos Wind Farm, we invested in research so that the region’s fauna and flora remain preserved. Acting with socio-environmental responsibility, we prepared preservation and conservation actions for the Lear’s Macaw and the licuri palm tree, the bird’s main food.
Our programs were designed for the entire project’s lifetime, aiming at leaving a legacy for the Brazilian biodiversity.
We have joined forces with Qualis Consultoria Ambiental, which gathers the greatest specialists in Lear’s Macaw in Brazil. Together with renowned biologists, we have conducted studies on the dynamics of the species, fostering and expanding technical-scientific knowledge in the area of the birds’ life and habitat.
The premises of our Conservation Programs were based on the National Action Plan for the Conservation of Caatinga Birds, with guidance from Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio) and other entities.
