Wilbur’s story…

Bright pink and fluffy…

Wilbur is one of the youngest members of her flock, and shares her valley enclosure with 50 other Chilean flamingos and around 15 red-breasted geese.

Wilbur and her sister Winnie…

are the daughters of Freya, our previous adoption flamingo, and her partner Pepe. All flamingo babies born in 2013 were named with the letter W!

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.
