To boost global conservation efforts, the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) is promoting partnerships to establish Centers for Species Survival as part of the #ReversethRed movement. Brazil is one of seven countries that has established a Center for Species Survival (CSS). The CSS Brazil is convened by Parque das Aves, IUCN SSC, and the SSC Conservation Planning Specialist Group. It serves as a national hub to capitalize on the experience and tools of the IUCN network to help governments, NGOs and communities achieve their conservation goals. A key aspect of Reverse the Red is to combine grassroots and country or region-specific approaches with global connectivity. CSS Brazil is no exception: Brazil has an existing national red listing infrastructure, but it doesn’t converse with Global Red Listing, and vice versa. By integrating conservation planning into the regional resource center and global Red Listing, it’s possible to identify which species most need help, and then convene facilitated, multi-stakeholder workshops within Brazil to make a strategic plan to save the species. This is the assess-plan-act cycle. Examples such as the Golden Lion Tamarin have, over the last decades, become important emblems of what can be done when we know that a species is threatened, what threatens it, join people together to make a solid, science and people-based plan, and then act on it. CSS Brazil took up as a flagship project 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's National Action Plans to save species, clearing the way for effective action involving everyone working on the ground to save a species, create protected areas, or to require strategic federal, state or local government cooperation in combating animal trafficking or creating new legislation, for example. The Center works closely with IUCN and commission members, government agencies, universities, the zoo community, and local people to ignite cooperation and optimism, exactly what we need to Reverse the Red.
