University students learn about RSI at Hato Masaguaral

In November 2018, RSI participated in the University of Texas course, “Ecology and Conservation of Venezuelan Birds” (I Curso de Ecología y Conservación de Aves de Venezuela, CECAV), which was jointly organized by UT in Rio Grande Valley, TX, USA, with the Fundación para el Desarrollo de las Ciencias Físicas, Matemáticas y Naturales (FUDECI) and the private Venezuelan ranch Hato Masaguaral. The course was attended by 25 university students who inspired us with their eagerness to do more to help protect Venezuelan bird species.

Bibiana Sucre, Executive Director of Provita, gave two presentations about Provita’s long-term work on the Yellow-shouldered Amazon and RSI. Bibiana shared recent achievements, long-term results and next steps in both projects and highlighted their importance for the preservation of Venezuela’s rich natural heritage.
