Who is WWF Guianas

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 1998. WWF Guianas efforts are to safeguard this incredible part of the Amazon and show the world the benefits of a rich biodiversity.


Conserve the distinct natural communities, ecological phenomenon and maintain viable populations of species of the Guianas in order to sustain important ecological processes and services that maintain biodiversity, while supporting the region's socio-economic development.

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.
