We envision self-sustaining populations of Red Siskins across their natural historical distribution, as an important model of successful conservation in Venezuela.

We dream of the Red Siskin as a source of local and national pride in all range countries, as well as a symbol of commitment to the preservation of their natural heritage.


Reduce the threat to Red Siskins from unsustainable harvest and habitat loss.

Maintain sufficient captive populations of Red Siskins rescued from the illegal trade to promote research, education, and fundraising; to supply individuals for reintroduction efforts; and to provide insurance against extinction in the wild.

Develop a successful breeding and reintroduction plan in strategic locations within the species’ historical distribution.

Increase awareness of and pride in the Red Siskin in towns and communities in Red Siskin habitat, achieving active participation in this bird’s preservation.
