Iwokrama is an Amerindian name given to a forest reserve, it has long been known by local people as a place where alot of species were found in one place. Established in 1996, Iwokrama's fundamental objective is to define the extent to which sustainable utilization of forest resources is compatible with conservation and to determine the impact of such utilization on biodiversity. The area encompasses about 3,600 sq. kilometres (360,000 ha/ nearly 1 million acres) and is covered in lush, pristine, lowland tropical forest. Half of the Iwokrama forest will be maintained as a wildlife preserve and half allocated to sustainable utilization of the multiple forest resources, it is also helps to facilitate research scientists.
