Sipaliwini

The Sipaliwini Nature Reserve is 1000 kmĀ² and is located in the south of Suriname in district Sipaliwini. With the establishment in 1972 of this nature area, the Sipaliwini savanna, which is in contact with the Paroe savanna in Brazil, is conserved.

The savanna is known for its unique species and has gained popularity through the discovery of the endemic blue poison dart frog (Dendrobates azureus).
