Focus Areas



Diverse ecosystems provide a range of ecological services, from pollination to water purification, contributing to human well-being and ensuring resilience against environmental changes. That makes it important to study and protect biodiversity at all scales.


Human activities like mining and logging disrupt natural habitats, leading to habitat loss, fragmentation, and degradation. Studying these disruptions and their effects aids in promoting sustainable practices, responsible land use, and reducing the impact of human activities on vulnerable species and ecosystems.


Working together with local communities and training future leaders and biologists not only equips them with the knowledge to address environmental issues but also ignites a passion for exploring and preserving the natural world. This is key to building a collective commitment to harmonious coexistence with nature.


Addressing climate change is paramount for the survival of numerous species and the well-being of our own society. It is essential to study the effects of climate change and develop optimal mitigation strategies. Working on climate change helps protect ecosystems, safeguard biodiversity, and ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.

Suriname has some very special places in terms of biodiversity. Pristine areas which host a treasure of animal and plant species must be protected.

Some areas are less pristine, and those stressors due to human disturbance and the effects they have on the ecosystem are important to study.

Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus)


Main threats: Habitat loss, Poaching

Oncillas are one of the smallest, little known and probably the most threatened small cat of the neotropics, and are rare everywhere they occur. In Suriname, they have thus far proven exceptionally rare in all areas studied so far. This makes them vulnerable to extirpation by different causes such as habitat loss, poaching and diseases. Because so little is known about them, adequate conservation planning is difficult.

Do you wish to help in gathering invaluable knowledge on this little known cat and fight against drivers of extiction like poaching and habitat loss? Please give us a donation.

NeoWild does research to gather knowledge on this species and tackles the broader issue of poaching and habitat loss through community outreach, awareness campaigns and incorporation of new processes for conservation.
