Welcome to
The South Rupununi Conservation Society and Karasabai

Formed in 2000, the South Rupununi Conservation Society comprises community members from six villages helps who banded together to protect the region’s flora and fauna. This includes the red siskin, a rare bird that was greatly endangered by the cage bird trade. Since the surprising discovery, the society has been working hard to determine the size of the population, its behaviour and habitat for conservation purposes. The village of Karasabai in the North Rupununi has undertaken similar efforts at on a smaller scale to protect the endangered Sun Parakeet. Recently a giant anteater monitoring project has been launched by the South Rupunununi Conservation Society at Wichabai Ranch and Guest Houses.
