A part of the Guianan Shield geological area, French Guiana is home to over 1,000 different forms of plant life.1 This area only became more densely populated in the last century, which has caused tension on the ecosystem. However, because of low levels of industrialization and a small population size, pollution levels are low and the environment is still in almost pristine condition. 95% of French Guiana is covered in forests, and nearly half of these forests are protected by the government.2 The biggest environmental concern is illegal gold mining, and this uncontrolled mining requires deforestation and mercury to be deposited in the water which is killing parts of the largest continuous tropical rainforest area in the world.3
