Facilities

Our waterfowl are housed in a variety of enclosures that are tailored to the specific needs of the each species. Ducks and smaller species of geese are maintained in netted aviaries to prevent avian predation, while large geese, cranes, and swans are maintained in an extensive network of open enclosures. In addition to flock enclosures, a dozen propagation enclosures are utilized to isolate breeding pairs of birds to ensure paternity and encourage nesting. A quarantine facility and additional research enclosures are maintained outside the main facility. The extensive infrastructure of fencing, natural and man-made pools, breeding pens, and buildings make the LRWC aviary a unique setting to house, breed, and study waterfowl species from around the world.
