Suriname is located in the region known as Amazonia and is more particular part of the Guayana Shield. The Guayana Shield underlies all of northeastern South America and covers a broad area between the Atlantic Ocean and the Orinoco and Amazon rivers. It is shared between Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela. This shield is one of the oldest – Proterozoic which dates it at 3.6 and 0.8 billion years ago – and most stable geologic formations in the world. Suriname is covered in lush, pristine rainforests, 94% of the territory is still forested, which makes it the greenest country in the world. We have some ancient crystalline uplands consisting of weathered and ancient rock basement. And in the south we find what is known as the Guyanan savannas. The indigenous name Guyanas is said to mean land of many streams, and this is where we conduct our research. In the Suriname River Estuary, where in addition to the Guiana Dolphin we see a number of other amazing species in this beautiful estuarine ecosystem, including homo sapiens.
