Natasha Schischakin has spent over twenty-five years working in aviculture, zoo-based wildlife conservation, small population and captive-breeding management, international conservation program development, education and training.  She retired from the Houston Zoo in 2002 after twenty years of service to start her own independent company, Rara Avis Consulting, Inc. Her broad knowledge of avian species and avicultural concepts has served as a foundation for her current projects, which include the development of avicultural training programs and seminars, and a book on the Spix's macaw conservation program.
