Center is a research, educational and conservation organization in Guyana,
South America. In the county of Demerara it encompasses about 8 hectares (20
acres) of land elevated 15 meters above sea level. The ecosystem has been
exploited just over 100 years for lumber, charcoal and shifting agriculture
– primarily pineapple (Ananas comosus) production. However, although
the small lease lots are zoned for agricultural use, the nutrient poor, fast
draining sands render the area unsuitable for agricultural activities especially
on such minuscule plots.
The travelling distance from Central Georgetown to Ceiba Biological Centre is 42 km (26 miles).
