In April, Parque Zoológico y Botánico Bararida (Barquisimeto, Venezuela) organized a special weekend to celebrate Earth Day. The event highlighted species threatened with extinction, including the Red Siskin. Most attendees were students, who were eager to learn about Bararida’s conservation work in Venezuela.

We particularly value the contributions of Leonel Ovalle, Dulce Quero, Reinaldo Jiménez and many community service students, and thank them for their support to the day’s activities and for their commitment to help save Venezuelan biodiversity.
