To meet our Conservation Strategy goal of “Promoting the sustainable management of the Venezuelan Red Siskin,” we have developed alliances with national and international aviculturists, to unite our combined knowledge and expertise in Red Siskin conservation. The result is the Red Siskin Specialists and Aviculturists Network (ReSSAN), an action network comprised of aviculturists and the scientific community. We all share a common interest in conserving wild Red Siskin populations, and we have agreed to pursue it through responsible and sustainable captive breeding practices.
ReSSAN focuses on exchanging experiences and validating protocols to help the ex-situ conservation program at the Red Siskin Conservation Center (RSCC) in Venezuela. Are you a breeder who wants to make sure your passion supports this bird in the wild, rather than further endangering it? There are many ways to help. We invite you to visit the webpage, check out our most recent accomplishments, and participate in our discussion forum!
