Green Heritage Fund Suriname

The Green Heritage Fund Suriname was established in October 2005 and is a charitable nonprofit. The Foundation was established due to its belief that the image of Lucia (Bradypus tridactylus) should not be used commercially, and with the idea that a non-profit charity could reinvest all earnings in programs that would help improve the fate of wildlife. Thus, the Foundation’s first program was born, the Xenarthra Program. The second and perhaps more well known initiative of the Foundation is the Dolphin Program. In 2005 a group of friends began to make regular trips in the Suriname River Estuary stopping at the beach of Braamspunt. Over time these outings developed into a regular research and monitoring activity. They also helped to encourage dolphin tourism which yields benefits for the local community.
