Photographer's Note

We were in trip with my friend Kency from TrekEarth when he was in Suriname for vacation last year. We went to Brownsberg / Brokopondo with a group from Paramaribo after 2.5 hours of long, difficult trip and we climb down to one of small water fall there named "Leo Val"

She was our guide during the tour.

In workshop version you can see another frame while lady enjoying under waterfall.

Brownsberg Nature Park : Brownsberg Nature Park was established in 1970 and is Suriname’s first and only national park. Since its creation, the Park has become one of the most popular nature recreation areas in Suriname. It is an excellent bird-watching area. It has unique habitats, such as moss forest, as well as endemic plant species. It also harbors a very diverse wildlife. The Foundation for Nature Conservation in Suriname has been successful in promoting the Park as a recreation destination. Equally critical, since it seeks to foster nature conservation in all of Suriname, is that opportunities be created at Brownsberg Nature Park for Surinamers to learn about nature. The Park hosted 17,000 mostly Surinamese visitors in the year 2001, which is equivalent to more than four percent of the total population of Suriname. Currently, it is the most popular nature destination in the country. It consequently offers unique opportunities for effective nature education, exposure to nature research, and the nation-wide promotion of love and respect for nature. On-the-job training of Surinamers in ecological research can be undertaken at the Park, in conjunction with facilitation of research and monitoring by national and international research teams. This will yield skilled personnel and critical information. The Park can become a place where monitoring techniques can be learned, and where studies on the sustainable use of the rainforest can be initiated. By exposing visitors to these techniques, studies and their results, the Park will effectively become a “Rainforest School”. Easy access and good facilities make it an attractive place to observe and learn.

Cheers,
