Proposal for the National Institute of Biodiversity and Conservation Areas (INBAC) to create an environmental conservation area for the Cumbira forest, Cuanza-Sul, with the objective of proposing an area that protects the forest habitat of Serra da Cumbira, its fauna and flora richness and that at the same time allows the sustainable management of resources in the region by the communities. The region's remarkable ornithological richness (with 227 species currently confirmed) and the important escarpment forest are at the origin of the proposal to establish a conservation area in Cumbira.
