We are thrilled that the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA – USA), has chosen the RSI to support with their Conservation Grant Fund (CGF), in order to design and build the first Red Siskin Conservation Center in Venezuela. The center will be multi-functional, and will serve to rescue Red Siskins confiscated from the illegal trade, to support research and education, and to house a flock as long-term insurance against extinction. We are now developing the designs and generating new strategic alliances to support this enormous step forward for RSI in Venezuela.
