WWF Guianas -as the only NGO in the Guianas- has worked for ten years in the realm of Gold-mining Pollution Abatement through various efforts. This has led to a widespread awareness on the negative effects of mercury poisoning and the pollution of freshwater systems. However, the topic is one with many challenges, and the sector is difficult to control.
