Discovery Centre in Peperpot Nature Park
WWF Guianas awarded Euro 2.4 million by the Dutch Postcode Lottery
With the help of an existing Euro 300,000 grant from the Dutch Embassy, the Peperpot site has been formally established and nature trails built. This new grant will help realize the ambition for the Peperpot Nature Park Discovery Centre to become a recognized centre of excellence and a world class venue for young and old alike to truly appreciate Suriname’s natural heritage.
The Peperpot Nature Park Discovery Centre will be built to the highest environmental and sustainability standards and incorporate elements of the surrounding nature in to the building itself. Construction will start almost immediately and the centre will be open to the public within a year. Within 3 years all additional infrastructure such as a research centre, extra nature trails, and a (digital) education platform for schoolchildren will also be completed.
