The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
Researching methods to provide a habitat more closely resembling the flamingo’s wild home led us to change their all grass habitat. Our horticulture staff worked closely with the zookeepers to create a dirt/mud surface in places for them to stand in, which is more like their natural habitat.
This species is cooperatively managed as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program program. This program is responsible for developing a Breeding and Transfer Plan for each species in the program.
