The Fazenda Cupido & Refúgio is a protected area with 180 hectares, that din't need to become a conservation unit in order to preserve its biodiversity. More than 60% of the area consist of Atlantic Forests. At the Fazenda work is done in a sustainable way. Its main products are cocoa, rubber trees and other fruit trees. Its lush vegetation and rich wildlife allow the fazenda to practice ecoturism. Many of the species that can be found here are threatened by extinction, like the red-billed curassow, the harpy eagle, the jaguar and the lowland tapir.
