Devils Island Penal Colony - French Guiana. The penal colony of Cayenne commonly known as Devil's Island, was a notorious prison of the 19th and 20th centuries. It operated at several locations in French Guiana. Opened in 1852, it is notorious for being used for internal exile of French political prisoners during that period, the most famous of which was Captain Alfred Dreyfus. The system was closed down in 1953. The prison system stretched over several locations, on the mainland and in the off-shore Îles du Salut group. Île Royale was the reception centre for the general population of the penal colony; they were housed in moderate freedom due to the difficulty of escape from the island.

Wrangler fig in local hill reserve, Mont Bourda. The sounds that you hear are neither by a woodpecker nor by some funny humans cracking up, but by the wrangler fig rubbing and screeching against the trunk of the host tree wrapped tightly inside. The constant background noise is the coastal breeze in the leaves. Through all this noise the occasional birds are hardly audible.

L'orpaillage illégal est un véritable fléau en Guyane française, tout comme au Suriname. Avec plusieurs milliers de chercheurs d’or clandestins, venus principalement de régions défavorisées du Brésil ou du Suriname, ces « garimpeiros », exploitent le sous-sol, avec tous les problèmes qui en découlent : saccage d’une des forêts tropicales uniques au monde, la moins fragmentée pour cette surface. Et le mercure utilisé en grande quantité (utilisé pour agglomérer les petites particules d'or) contamine les rivières, le poisson, et donc, les populations locales. Les orpailleurs illégaux, bénéficiant parfois de la téléphonie moderne et du GPS et/ou encadrés par des réseaux mafieux et armés, se sont faits plus mobiles et discrets depuis les années 1990. Opérant parfois aussi de nuit, et sous le c...
