The region in the south of Bahia, more specifically the band contained the Jequitinhonha and Contas Rivers, preserve the most significant parcel of Atlantic Rainforest in the northeast of Brazil. The forests of this region are characterized by tall trees with leaves that always remain green and the abundance of epiphytes. There you'll find species threatened with extinction like the yellow-breasted twig monkey and the ring-necked sloth.

The Atlantic Rainforest is considered by the worldwide scientific community one of the richest combined ecosystems in diversity of animals and plants species in the world and the second most threatened with extinction. Because of this fact, in 1991 UNESCO elevated the Atlantic Rainforest to the category of Biosphere Reserve, being today one of the three mayor conservation priorities in the world.


The principal conservations areas of the region are APA of Itacaré/Serra Grande and Serra do Conduru State Park.

The Area of Environmental ProtectionAPA of Itacaré/Serra Grande – is considered as a "Heritage of Humanity". Its limits are marked in the north by the mouth of the Contas River, in the south by Sargi Creek and in the east by the Atlantic Ocean; with an area of approximately 16,000 hectares (40,000 acres) of rich fauna and flora.

The Serra do Conduru State Park has an area of approximately 9,000 hectares (22,000 acres). It covers important sections of Atlantic Rainforest which are still preserved. A survey performed there by botanists from the New York Botanical Gardens identified 456 different vegetal species in a single hectare (2.47 acres), a world record.

Complete Brazil Consulate List for the United States

This is the most comprehensive list for Brazilian Consulates in the United States.  For some reason the information online is spotty and incomplete.  Even the other Brazil Consulates do not have all of the correct info for each other.

Brazil is gearing up for a MASSIVE increase in American tourists from all over the United States from Hawaii to Alabama and everything in between.  Brazil has nearly doubled the amount of consulates located in the US in the last year!

Okay if you live outside of the United States jurisdiction just do a Google search for your country and the words "Brazil Consulate".  This is a list for all the Brazil Consulates in the US.  The Consulate you are supposed to go to depends on what state or territory you live in.  This list will get you pointed in the right direction.
