The C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program • Some species at risk

The purpose of the C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program is to encourage hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species-at-risk, while forming an information network between aquarists, scientists and conservationists. Hosted by C.A.R.E.S. speaker Klaus Steinhaus

I want to start breeding simply so that I can help. I just bought a 250 gallon tank and filter a week ago and I'm ready. Once I start breeding more and more fish, how do I make sure that they go into the right hands so that they can flourish?

There are tilapia snyderae in my local club. I'd love to get my hands on some Eretmodus cyanostictus and help this cause. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I would love to have a tank devoted to a pair, or two of some of these cichlids. I had no idea that some of these fish were becoming endangered....

A PM with info as to where I can buy these fish, and more info as to why the are currently endangered; is it pollution of the fresh water sources by the SA, CA, and African governments involved?

What can I do to help? I could keep some of them if any of them are african cichlids.

The CARES Program is not only for club and organizations, individuals can also become members. My responsibility is to look after clubs, societies and organizations. Each of these clubs has a CARES support team (which is usually a team of one :D ). They collect the data from each participating club member on a summery form and send them to me to be included in the main CARES database. Cares members that do not belong to any organization will send their data to the CARES for Individuals coordinator Leslie Dick at leslie@carespreservation.com. This way anybody who is interested and willing to free up some tank space has two opportunities to help our endangered fish. Depending on your choice of participation just contact either Leslie or myself and we will send you the information you need.

CARES is not only for cichlids but all fish that can be kept in an aquarium. Also the C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program recognizes only those fish that are within the bounds of domestic laws. Species that are not available to hobbyists for regulatory reasons are not included on this list. The CARES Conservation Priority Species at Risk List http://www.carespreservation.com/priority_list.html can not be compared with the IUCN RED LIST http://www.iucnredlist.org/ which lists every animal.

The CARES Program is growing very fast and the number of clubs joining CARES is growing rapidly. To look for a club near you, you might check out the members page at http://www.carespreservation.com/members.html.

Hello,
I have a colony of Copadichromis sp "Virginalis Gold" 4 males and 6 females. from this group I have 4 juveniles, 10 younger juveniles and 7 Fry with egg sacks just starting to disappear. I'm looking for others who have this species as I'd like to trade for Genetic diversity!
If anyone has this species, It is endangered and is at HIGH Risk for extinction.
I have 4 - 1" + up to trade with anyone who has this species.
