We are Conservation International Suriname
We are Conservation International Suriname and we started working in Suriname, South America, since 1992. In the meanwhile we have done lots of exiting and meaningful projects such as assisting with the set up of the 36 million acres Central Suriname Nature Reserve in 1998, and more recently (2015) the creation of the South Suriname Conservation Corridor existing of 17.3 million acres. We do numerous other projects to protect nature and help preserve livelihoods of indigenous peoples. Our core believe is that "people need nature to thrive".
We work across Suriname to protect nature for the benefit of all Surinamese people and the rest of the world. Being the greenest country in the world, Suriname harbors unrivaled natural resources and globally significant biodiversity. We work to conserve natural capital, the foundation of socio-economic development.
