CONSERVATION

   Spilotes sulphureus is not currently listed as threatened or endangered, but because much of their native range is imperiled by resource extraction, fragmentation, deforestation, and development, one can still extrapolate serious concern for their longterm well-being in their native habitat. Due to a number of factors, including the aforementioned resource extraction and a rapidly changing global climate, wild animals the world over are experiencing precipitous declines, and as such, very few can be forecasted in a positive light. With all this in consideration and after researching factors that directly impact the native ecologies from which sulphureus emerge, I accept donations toward conservation and distribute them to indigenous conservation efforts in their home range, posting receipts periodically in the blog section of this website for accountability and transparency. Additionally, in the event that I am successful breeding sulphureus in the future, I am committed to donating fifty percent of all potential sales of hatchlings in my care to the aforementioned conservation organizations.
