As in all of CI's projects, the foundation of our work begins with the local people. In Suriname, CI helped establish the bioprospecting project as a means for the country to benefit economically from its biologically rich rain forest without cutting it down.
The Maroon people of Suriname are Conservation International's partners in an ongoing effort to prevent the wholesale destruction of Suriname's rain forests.
