Meet Cesar Gonzaga and his Team

Fazenda Serra Morena has partnered with the Black Jaguar Foundation. Owner Cesar Gonzaga approached the BJF Team to ask for our help in preserving his property.

Fazenda Santa Fé was one of the first-ever farmers to partner with the Black Jaguar Foundation. Taking a leap of faith because they felt passionate about restoring nature and committing to our huge reforestation mission.

About the farm

Located in the south of Pará state, Fazenda Serra Morena occupies an area close to the Araguaia River in the municipality of Santana do Araguaia.

The main activity is agriculture with 1,000 productive hectares and a total of 4,000 farmable hectares in total.


The director of the farm, Cesar Gonzaga has lived in Santana do Araguaia for almost 30 years. He sees the importance in preservation, to produce food for our children and the world, but also to leave part of it in preserving the environment and climate.

He is passionate to show the world that farmers aren’t destructors of the environment, and that they are part of the solution.
