The South Rupununi Conservation Society
Since 2000, the South Rupununi Conservation Society (SRCS) has been committed to sustaining a healthy environment for the people, plants and animals of the Rupununi region of Guyana
We are farmers, hunters, school children, business people, tour operators, teachers, tour guides and more. We are the women, men and children who call the Rupununi our home.
Over the years, we have seen a decline in the number of animals and plants of the Rupununi region as well as continued degradation of the natural environment. Through education, research and conservation we are dedicated to sustaining and protecting the wildlife of our home.
In 2020 we are focused on primary and secondary school environmental education, Red Siskin research and conservation, Giant Anteater research and conservation, Yellow Spotted River Turtle research and fire monitoring.
Giant Anteater Research now in 4 Communities
How many Giant Anteaters exist in this region? How do they use the land? What are the threats against them? And how can we help this threatened species? We are now working with 4 communities to find out.
Children to learn traditional skills in 8 South Rupununi villages
We are enabling villages to share their skills and knowledge with the younger generation: all in the spirit of care and love for the environment.
