The Regua Project.


'For each hundred trees of time long gone, only five remain to bear witness and to accuse the centuries-old, relentless executioner. Only five, no more: the ghost of the proud primeval forest'....Carlos Drummond de Andrade.

Regua is hepling to protect one of the last stands of tropical rainforests in the severely depleted Atlantic Rainforest which needs as much help as it can get. Please take a look at the website below. 



And take a look at the video below showing one of many of the rich array and variation of birds to be found in the Atlantic Rainforest Mata Atlantica the Green-headed Tanager.



You can keep up to date on the travels - and see the pictures of some of the brilliant birds - of Colin Bushell who is currently leading a truly successful trip in this amazing area in Brazil HERE

DID YOU KNOW....

If you're having trouble viewing the video - it keeps freezing up - it runs freely the second time around.
