The Red Siskin Conservation Center (RSCC) is ready!

We are pleased to announce that Venezuela’s first dedicated Red Siskin Conservation Center (RSCC) is almost complete! The Center, located at Leslie Pantin Zoo in Turmero, Aragua, Venezuela, represents a major milestone for RSI, and a crucial step toward bringing the Endangered Red Siskin back from the brink of extinction. With the support of many partners, we have created essential infrastructure to rescue, rehabilitate, raise, and one day reintroduce this species in a sustainable way within the framework of our overall Conservation Strategy. We are grateful to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the Department of Animal Programs of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) for the support that made this work possible.
