The Sophia Point Rainforest Research Centre represents a beacon of hope for biodiversity.
Our planet faces the existential threats of climate change, biodiversity loss and the global spread of pandemics. A burgeoning project in the heart of untouched rainforests in Guyana, South America promises hope for conservation and climate change science.
The Sophia Point Rainforest Research Centre, a proposed 40 acre site preserving hundreds of miles of unexploited rainforest, will be Guyana’s first truly accessible wildlife and rainforest research centre. Sophia Point will be on the frontlines in the fight against species loss and climate change when it is needed most. It will provide a site for cutting edge international science as well as the training and education of Guyana’s next generation of leaders. Transforming research and conservation of this incredibly vital environment.
Guyana’s rainforests offer a natural climate solution. Rainforests still cover 85 percent of Guyana, storing over 5 billion tons of carbon and are teeming with an incredible diversity of plants and animals.
Through direct partnerships with indigenous and local communities, Sophia Point will integrate local environmental expertise with cutting edge science to secure a sustainable, more equitable future for all.
