Since 2005 a group of local volunteers have collected basic data on the wild Sotalia guianensis dolphin population in the estuary of the Suriname River. This dolphin program has been involved in the collection of basic data, training of volunteers and other stakeholders, and providing education and information to the general public.
There is an opportunity for guests to join the research trips (maximum of 10 people per trip). For more information go to Visit Us.
Working on the conservation of dolphins in the estuary of the Suriname river inspired GHFS to expand its conservation efforts to include the marine environment in its entirety. This shift in focus inspired the organization to work towards sustainable use and management of the marine environment, which ultimately motivated the GHFS initiate or promote the use of marine spatial planning in Suriname.
