    About This Project

    The Sun Conure, Aratinga solstitialis, is vanishing. Wildlife trafficking has nearly eliminated this beautiful bird from Guyana. We will construct a breeding facility and identify captive birds in the pet trade that are descended from birds captured in Guyana to serve as founders for a reintroduction program. We will prepare the foundation of a scientifically sound, tourism compatible conservation breed and release program for this iconic species.

    Blast off!
