The Life+ fight against Acacia mangium in the commune of Saint-Laurent du Maroni

Between the 5th and 20th December last, GEPOG, with the help of volunteers and staff from Elaguyane have been carrying out control measures on the Acacia mangium trees in the commune of Saint-Laurent du Maroni.

Following the example of the actions put in place at the Maison de la Nature de Sinnamary, two parcels of land at Saint-Laurent will act as test sites to see how effective the existing control methods might be against this species.


The first belongs to the ADNG (Association pour la Découverte de la Nature en Guyane), and the second to a private individual farmer. These two parcels will test how adaptable the techniques are in dealing with what are two different contexts.

Watch this space!
