On this website you'll be able to find information regarding the International Tanager Project. This project had it's start in 2015 and is aimed at the conservation of tanager species in Europe. Both zoos and private breeders are cooperating in this project, not only to exchange birds but also to share information on the breeding and keeping of tanagers. Besides the project information, you;ll find on this website practical information on the keeping and breeding of tanagers.
Since the stop of importation of birds, the amount of tanager species kept in Europe have declined rapidly. To preserve these beautiful birds it is vital to start or expand the breeding of species that are currently kept. Several private breeders have shown that breeding thisspecies is well possible, but can be quite challenging. Through this website we hope to bring breeders of these birds in contact with each other, and to share all information that is gathered. Besides the general information on the species, we will update this site with practical information that we get from breeders. We are currently working on starting several breeding programs to secure these species in Europe.

Breeding accounts are an important source of information for many breeders. For many species there is hardly (breeding) information available, while many species have been kept and bred for many years. In that account the breeding accounts provided are "proof" that these species can be kept as aviary birds! Therefore the account are very important to preserve the current breeders, but also spark the interest of potential new breeders. Do you have breeding accounts or information on breeding tanagers? Please let us know and share it with other breeders. You'll find some breeding accounts hier.
