Guianan Freshwater swamp forests

WWF Abstract

Nestled between the Atlantic coastal mangroves and the foothills of the coastal mountains of northern Suriname and Guyana, the Paramaribo Swamp Forests is a relatively small ecoregion. A long, thin strip of forest parallels the Atlantic coastline--a lowland habitat with a mixture of seasonally flooded forests and permanently flooded swamp forests. Here, giant spiders wait to ambush a meal, brilliant flowers bloom, brightly colored birds fly overhead, and snakes and lizards lie in wait for their prey.
