The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
We are currently working on getting our kookaburras to step onto our hand so we can put them into a carrier. This will be useful for weighing them and reducing stress before medical procedures.
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.
