The South Rupununi Conservation Society Welcomes You

Since 2000, The South Rupununi Conservation Society has been committed to sustaining a healthy environment for the people, plants and animals of the Rupununi region of Guyana

Who We Are

We are farmers, hunters, school children, business people, tour operators, teachers, tour guides.  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.  Through education, research and conservation we are dedicated to sustaining and protecting the wildlife of our home.

In 2019 we are focused on primary and secondary school environmental education, Red Siskin research and conservation, and a Giant Anteater pilot research project.
