During my visit of the Cisame Camp I saw some birds. The most wildlife I saw around Kourou and on the Île Royale (Red-rumped Agouti (Dasyprocta leporina, french: Agouti doré), Brown Capuchin (Sapajus apella, german: Gehaubter Kapuziner, french: Capucin brun), Green Sea Turtles (Chelonia mydas, german: Grüne Meeresschild­kröte, french: Tortue verte), and various birds).
