Rupununi scenes


Caiman concentration: Guides at the Caiman Field research station in Yupukari, Region Nine prepare to release an 11-foot, four inches black caiman after taking measurements last week.


Sunning out:  Yellow-spotted river turtles taking some sun in their pond at Yupukari, Region Nine. Allowing the vulnerable turtles to grow to a certain size in the pond before being released into their natural habitat is part of a new conservation programme in the community.


Placid: A view of the Central Rupununi savannah last week from a lookout point on the Kanuku Mountains at Moco-Moco, Region Nine.
