A message from The Red Siskin Conservation Project, a NFSS-supported effort to recover declining numbers in the wild:

The Red Siskin is one of the world’s most endangered birds and, tragically, remains a prized target for wildlife traffickers. Trapping has eliminated this species from much of its historic range in northern South America but a few small populations persist in Venezuela, where it is culturally iconic and a well-recognized symbol for wildlife conservation.

NFSS supports efforts to conserve species under threat in the wild and has been actively involved with international partners on a plan to recover the Red Siskin in Venezuela through an innovative captive breeding and reintroduction program.
