Map of the three 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.
Due to their incredible low population densities, the Guianas -all of them with 80-90% pristine forest cover- are an exception to the majority of today's overpopulated world. Although much of their biodiversity is still unknown, it is for certain of an incredible richness. The coasts of the Guianas are home to one of the largest populations of the endangered Leatherback turtle in the world and hosts millions of migratory birds from North America which winter here. Typical Guiana birds such as the incredible Red Ibis and the Cock-of-the-Rock attract bird lovers from all over the world.
