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.
Environmental Education Pilot
2019 is the start of our environmental education pilot scheme. Beginning in four villages, this will take on themes like use of communal resources, sustainable burning practices, and traditional stories about the natural environment
