The Center for Species Survival Brazil took up as a flagship project the conservation crisis of the Birds of the Atlantic Rainforest: this is currently the largest continental avian extinction crisis on the planet, with many species with 100 or fewer individuals remaining in total distribution. As a result of the last three years’ work, CPSG workshop results are officially incorporated into the Brazilian government National Action Plans to save species, clearing the way for effective action involving everyone working on the ground to save a species, to create protected areas, or to require strategic federal, state or local government cooperation in combating animal trafficking or creating new legislation, for example.

Parque das Aves and partners carry this forward by creating and executing fieldwork initiatives and projects which follow CPSG’s strategic, multi-stakeholder plans to save species. The flagship project is a kind of arena to test out forms of cooperation for Brazil and to feel what can be achieved through different formats; what CSS Brazil achieves here can be followed through for many different species groups.
