Studies and surveys of the Serra Bonita Reserve´s fauna and flora are conducted by universities and research organizations, in partnership with Instituto Uiraçu. We want to know the Atlantic Rainforest, in order to protect the biome and its ecosystems.
By 2015, over 50 research projects have been completed or are underway at the Serra Bonita Reserve. Twenty new species of flora and fauna have been identified, and 27 species of endangered birds have been recorded. Many other endangered species, not listed yet, still exist at Serra Bonita.
The goal is to make the Serra Bonita Reserve an international reference in research on the Atlantic Forest, an advanced field station for universities all around the world, and a reference as a place for watching birds and megafauna.
