Our mission focuses on the conservation of threatened and endangered species from around the world.
We maintain a goal to educate and establish a bridge of understanding between conservationists and the public sector. Our main focus has always been to increase public awareness concerning diminishing native and non-native species of reptiles and birds.
Since relocating our organization to the heart of South Texas, we have expanded our mission to include protecting the plethora of endangered native wildlife within our area; species once prolific within the great State of Texas.
The citrus and agricultural industries predominant in South Texas have destroyed the native habitats for far too many species of birds, insects, reptiles, and mammals throughout the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.
Our pioneering conservation initiatives incorporate educational programs for both local schools and higher educational curriculums throughout the United States and Internationally.
We have developed an onsite, advanced biological research laboratory, breeding programs, and in-situ release programs for captive-bred specimens. Our educational programs are unique to our efforts to re-establish the diminishing native animal populations that have fallen prey to agricultural expansion both domestic and International.
Board of Directors Summary
GREEN Wildlife Center’s Board of Directors are all volunteers who dedicate their time to support our mission. Each board member is passionate about our mission, and dedicated to implementing new ways to conserve endangered species and their habitats.
Our Board consists of construction experts, wildlife authorities, botanists and biologists, professors, authors, environmental engineers, tech specialists, and media trailblazers. Our Board aggressively nurtures our initiatives.
The growing number of endangered and threatened species in the wild today has expanded our organization’s focus on species survival. We are continuously researching the variety and various classifications of endangered species, both globally and native to Texas.
GREEN’s goals include ways to protect endangered species of turtles, tortoises, and avian. Captive breeding is an on-going objective for our in-situ and ex-situ conservation initiatives.
We house species from all over the world at our main South Texas facility. We protect many species that are extinct in the wild, from the Arakan forest turtle from Southeast Asia to the Central American White Capped Amazon parrot.
Our scope of species is expansive, and we remain focused on preserving a growing number of threatened habitats and animal populations that are declining globally at exponentially rapid rates.
Conservation and Construction Summary
Conservation today is never stagnant. Our organization continuously updates habitat and facility construction projects, and constantly implements State of the Art technology to secure and accommodate the best well-being of all our species.
Each species requires a unique habitat to secure its survival in captivity. Our habitat construction varies from irrigation systems operating timed systematic routines to recreating indigenous soils and plant designs to mock their natural sunlight schedules – all critical components to assist these species to thrive and reproduce.
