Help save the dolphins

this task:

Green Heritage Fund Suriname (GHFS) is committed to the preservation of pink river dolphins (Sotalia guianensis) in the Suriname River estuary, initiating a monitoring program in 2007. Specially trained volunteers, occasionally joined by paying guests, conduct sightings and registrations.

This program not only offers a unique experience for participants but also contributes financially to the research, vital for decision-making on coastal activities impacting the area. The Guiana dolphin, recognized as Sotalia guianensis, has been the focus of GHFS's dolphin research since 2005, contributing to understanding their status and behavior.

The goal is to establish a robust community monitoring program, increase habitat knowledge, involve local actors in education, promote long-term sustainability, advocate for wildlife protection, and stimulate knowledge exchange in nature conservation. Guests joining the program on Sundays directly contribute to financing and receive valuable insights into dolphins and estuarine ecosystems.
