The Shelley’s crimsonwing (Cryptospiza shelleyi) is a finch that inhabits the dense highland rain forests of the Albertine Rift in central Africa. This bird is classified by Birdlife International in the IUCN Red Data List as vulnerable (a high risk of extinction) but lack of data prohibits a more accurate classification. Research conducted by the Rare Finch Conservation Group www.rarefinch.org suggests that this finch is in dire straights. After 9 years this project has regretably due to lack of funds and logistical reasons been defered. Read more about our most recent developments on our LATEST NEWS page.


This Shelley's crimsonwing was trapped in February 2008 during a bird survey of Mount Tshiaberimu, an annex of the Virunga National Park in DR Congo, by the Gorilla Organization www.gorillas.org
