  1. It’s actually surprising just how involved many of the zoos and wildlife sanctuaries are in trying to save endangered animals such as captive breeding programs. We never really hear about it. I don’t think people realise just how many species are endangered and need saving and how difficult it can be for these places to get funding to do so.

    • You are so true in what you say Sue, most people are not aware and don’t really care because it does not directly affect their life. Their are over 100 Birdlife International are quoted writing: “The numbers are clear: today, one in eight of the world’s 10,000 bird species are threatened with extinction, of which more than 200 are categorised as Critically Endangered, the highest category of threat of extinction.” These are only birds, let alone all the other wild life. We have over 100 wildlife species endangered in Australia. Taronga zoo is doing a great job to help with their breeding programs.

  2. Looks like you have a great avian selection at your zoo. Beautiful shots of beautiful birds – especially the goose and dove. That pink crown looks fake lol! Our zoo doesn’t have many captured birds. But the lorikeet section actually allows you in to feed them by hand. I love that!

    • That is a thrill to be able to feed the birds at your zoo Kelly! The lorikeets are always noisily feeding from the native flowers in our gardens, with male and female couple constantly communicating to one another as they feed.
