"I know the country, the distributional land of the specie carduelis cucullata and I'm dedicated to research and breeding birds, neglected by several people in high places who live from the word CONSERVATION! The only interest of these individuals is to be present at the Congress, to sell T-shirts, and to accuse any Country that has some of the endangered non-native species of birds in their possession. Individuals who have very little knowledge about birds and often no responsible attitude towards the environment that we all live in. This is a very serious problem with which we are confronted over and over again.

My project, if you read it carefully, you can see that this is a project with a moral, ethical and scientific problems which would have to be addressed so that we can save these and many other endangered species of birds and animals. The contents of this project considers all aspects related to the situation of the specie, and is oriented towards finding a solution to preserving the birds habitat and the continuos Human expansion into their territory.

The problem is, I need financial support for development of this project. I need the relation with every one interested in the Red Siskin, I need information about the Stud Book, and other related information."
