  • Community Owned Conservation Area (COCA)

    Guyana’s first Community Owned Conservation Area is now the largest protected area in the country and is managed exclusively by the Wai Wai indigenous group. This has effectively brought more than one million acres of rain-forest under sustainable management while ensuring the continued development of the group and their traditional way of life. The Wai Wais of Konashen District in the south of Guyana received title to the land in 2004 and partnered with Conservation International and the Government of Guyana to have the entire area established as a protected area.
