Saving Brazilian forest birds

From BirdLife:

SAVE Brasil sets the echoes of Conservation in the Serra do Urubu

Fri, Dec 30, 2011

Since 2004, SAVE Brasil (BirdLife in Brazil) has been working to conserve the last remaining forests in the Serra do Urubu, in the municipality of Lagoa dos Gatos, Pernambuco state, northeastern Brazil. The Serra do Urubu Important Bird Area (IBA BR074) is home to a rich and unique biodiversity, including two of the world’s most threatened birds: Alagoas Foliage-gleaner Philydor novaesi and Alagoas Antwren Myrmotherula snowi. Conservation work began with the purchase of a 362 hectare property, today known as the Pedro D’Anta Natural Heritage Private Reserve, which is adjacent to the Frei Caneca Natural Heritage Private Reserve. Combined, the two areas protect 1000 hectares of Atlantic Forest.
