Freya’s story…

Bright pink and fluffy…

but not scared to get down and dirty, when it comes time to make a nest in the mud! Freya is the pride of her flock, and has helped to expand the flamingo family at Durrell for many years.

Preening and nest building

is a balancing act, but we all know that to a flamingo, amazing balance comes naturally.

How Durrell helps Chilean flamingos

Chilean flamingos have been cared for in Jersey since 1966, and breed successfully here. There is currently a flock of around 50 birds.

As always, the development of effective conservation methods is needed, in order to improve and enforce habitat protection and to promote awareness of the importance of these beautiful native birds among local people. Such measures will help to maintain the populations of this species and should see the Chilean flamingo flourish.
