WWF Guianas Mission Statement

WWF has been active in the Guianas since the sixties, starting with conservation work around the Marine Turtles. The WWF Guianas office is open since 1999.

WWF's mission is to conserve nature and ecological processes, to seek the sustainable use of natural resources, and to promote the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption while recognizing and respecting human needs and livelihoods.
Our aim is to slow down, and eventually reverse, the accelerating degradation of our planet's natural environment; and to help build the future in which people live in harmony with nature. 

The exceptional Guianas

The three Guianas (Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana) border Brazil on the northern coast of South America.
They are an exceptional part of the Amazon biome. All three Guianas still have 80-98% pristine forest coverand incredible biodiversity.
