On April 24th 2015, a group consisting of 17 adventurers set out for a journey to Shell Beach. We assembled at Parika on the East Bank of the Essequibo river and we traveled to Supernaam. In Essequibo we visited Lake Capoey (see here) and a few other places of interest. We spent the night at a friend’s house (Thank you for everything Hillary) and the next morning we were on the move at 7AM. The adventure was real and if you want to experience wildlife in Guyana, then a trip like this is recommended. Enjoy the short video and the images. Write us if you would like to have higher resolutions of the images.
Shell Beach, located on the Atlantic coast of Guyana in the Barima-Waini Region, near the Venezuelan border, is a nesting site for four of the eight sea turtle species – the Green, Hawksbill turtleill, Leatherback and the Olive Ridley. Shell Beach extends for approximately 145 km (Kalamandeen, 2013). See more here: http://www.gotoguyana.org/articles/saving-our-natural-heritage-shell-beach-and-sea-turtles-by-michelle-kalamandeen/
