The RPPN Revecom is a wildlife sanctuary that advocates sustainable development through participatory activities. With jungle, natural wetlands, and a coastal region bordering the mighty Amazon River, RPPN Revecom’s forty-two acres contain trails, rope bridges, and wooden walkways. Pediatrician Dr. Paulo Roberto and his wife, Mrs. Marilene Amorim, started RPPN Revecom in 1997. Their work focuses on the treatment and rehabilitation of injured animals and animals captured by the illegal trafficking of animal stings by government entities. Dr. Paulo Roberto’s accomplishments on this reserve are even more remarkable because he receives virtually no government assistance for his philanthropic work. The activities are funded through donations and partnerships.
