Back from the Brink: Saving the Red Siskin (Sporagra cucullata)
Smithsonian Institute of Biodiversity Genomics | Washington DC.  "In Venezuela, the red siskin (Sporagra cucullata) is known as el Cardenalito—or "little cardinal"—a tribute to its vibrant colors. This charismatic bird is part of the country's national identity: It is the official bird of Lara state, the subject of well-known folk songs, and its image appears on the highest denomination currency, the hundred bolívar fuerte note. It is also one of the most endangered birds in the world."

By Howard Youth - published in World Watch Magazine, May/June 2002, Volume 15, No. 3 | Washington DC. "Today, more than a thousand species of birds face extinction. Many more are in steady decline. Significantly, the strategies that can stop this attrition are the same strategies needed to  achieve a sustainable human future."
