Tropical Conservation Institute

We unite conservation leaders, students and researchers to conserve and recover critical species and biodiversity-rich ecosystems. An innovative collaboration between Florida International University and the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation, we’re integrating conservation zoology, hands-on project implementation and professional development.

Saving Species

The Lost Bird Exhibit, at the Kampong in Coconut Grove, highlights the plight of birds driven to extinction in modern times. Learn more about how you can visit and help us save the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow before its too late.


Graduate Students
