The 766 Preserve – Rainforest Property for Sale
Brazil Rainforest Preservation Property – Lots for Sale
We’re proposing that you save/preserve this precious tract of endangered rainforest.
We have a total of 766 hectares(1893) acres available for purchase). Parcels/lots are available for sale to conservation buyers, and ultra-low impact owner buyers.
- 500 hectares(1236 acres) are available as a parcel for $2,241 USD per hectare($900/acre), or as 12 – 40.5 hectare(100+ acre) parcels for $2,490USD per hectare($1000/acre).
- Additionally, there are 89 river frontage lots available that range in size from 3 hectares (7.4 acres) to 12 hectares (29.7 acres). All lots have at least 30 meters of frontage on the river Igarape Branco, and are 1000 meters in length. Prices begin at $55k USD. The majority of the lots are priced at $89k USD, with the largest lot priced at $250k USD.
The parcel/lots exist within a privately-owned tract of 766 hectares(1896 acres) of virgin Amazon rainforest in the State of Para in Brazil. The preservation of land tracts such as this is paramount to the health of the Amazon region, its plants, animals, people, culture, and economy.
This prime forest land adjacent to the Tapojos National Forest in the Amazon region of Brazil. As a whole tract, this land could be purchased by an environmentally conscious individual or organization dedicated to its preservation.
This is one of the few remaining large, intact pieces of unspoiled land bordering the Tapajos National Forest. There is a concentration of rare plant and wildlife, several miles of the Igarape Branco river and several million board feet of prime timber in species such as ipe, jatoba, cumaru, angelim pedra, lacewood, goncalo alves and so on. The land is right on the Cuiaba highway(BR-163), which is the only main north and south road from the Amazon River to the south of Brazil (Cuiaba), and the road is paved. The land is accessible year round by car and is only one hour from a major airport serviced by international flights.
Within a mile of this land, NASA and other world environmental organizations have established research stations within the Tapajos Forest, which is one of the largest virgin forests remaining on the planet. Before we purchased this land, it was once destined to become one of the many large-scale farms so common in the region. Farming and cattle ranching mean complete forest removal. In the case of this land, not a single tree would be on it had it not been purchased by present owners. It is our hope that the future owner will possess a strong desire to preserve it for generations to come.
Possible uses include a private nature preserve, environmental research station, private investment, selective timber harvest or eco-tourism development.

The 766 Preserve is adjacent to the Tapajos National Forest, approximately 76 km south of the City of Santarem. Santarem is located at the confluence of the mighty Tapajos and the Amazon Rivers. The Tapajos region is one of a combination of agribusiness farms(mainly soy), virgin and managed forest lands. This piece of rainforest is in the middle of one of the most endangered areas for loss to agribusiness in the whole of Brazil. Bisecting this region of Amazonian Brazil is BR-163, “the soy highway”, named so because it ends at an enormous soy receiving facility in Santarem. The rainy season lasts from December to July, with most precipitation occurring from December to May.
The 766 Preserve is located within a region containing a stunning level of bio-diversity. This is the rainforest of your dreams. The dense tropical forest with over 1200 tree species, hosts an array of mammals including spider monkeys, jaguars, tapirs, two-toed sloths and more common game like agoutis, peccaries, capuchin monkeys, Howler monkeys and marmoset. A number of highly threatened species of water mammals, such as river otters, giant otters and manatee are found in the regioin. Reptiles, amphibians and insects are plentiful. Included in some of the 300 different species of fish are Tambaquis, Pirarucus, stingrays and cat fish. Over 300 species of birds, including macaws, parrots, and the Golden Parakeet, the symbol of Brazil.
This is an ultra-low impact conservation development. The biggest advantage of conservation development is that it can protect species and ecosystems, preventing further habitat fragmentation and loss. Any type of development will have some impact on the land. But by studying it, there are ways in which this can be mitigated. There are social and recreational advantages to conservation development. The protected green space can provide excellent recreational activities, such as hiking, swimming, or simply observing nature. It’s hopeful that with this experience, people can reconnect with nature and develop a land ethic.
The entire parcel of 766 hectares can be purchased. Please contact us to discuss whole parcel pricing. Alternately we can sell individual parcel/lots and proceed with an eco-adventure park project(*see below) on the remaining whole parcel. Ideally, the owner of these 766 Preserve lots will purchase them as-is and without desire for further development — truly as a conservation buyer. Alternately, ultra-low impact development will be allowed on each lot under heavy deed restrictions. Other than two-track access to the 89 3-hectare lots as detailed traversing the lots in the image on this page, no common infrastructure will be provided, nor allowed with the lots. Any planned lot structures must fit with deed restrictions. Types of allowable structures may include: Tiny houses, simple cabins, tree-houses, canopy towers, and complying outdoor restrooms. Already existing within the lots is a simple cabin, and a swimming hole with swimming deck and rope swing. How would you like to rope swing into the refreshing cool clear waters of a tributary of the Amazon? You’ll never want to leave.
*Without potential buyers, the 500 hectares(1236 acres) parcel adjacent to the river frontage lots is slated for ultra-low impact development as an eco-adventure and learning park. Development will include, very simply — walking paths, canopy walks, and above canopy view towers.
We need you. We need you and your investment to preserve the property. It’ s important to the region, the people, bio-diversity, and the planet. Your participation will make an impact for generations to come.
