Durrell field programme
Durrell Wildlife Park
With a wild population of just 25 individuals, the Madagascar pochard is one of the rarest birds on the planet. Discovered surviving on a single lake, captive-breeding efforts have successfully tripled the global population.
The rarest species are often the less well known, but our species profiles are here to give you easy access to the key facts and photos. Click for a snapshot of the Madagascar pochard
