Future of Waterfowl Conservation Workshop

Sylvan Heights Bird Park and the International Wild Waterfowl Association’s mission of educating the next generation of waterfowl conservationists continued in February 2016  as the park hosted the inaugural “Future of Waterfowl Conservation Workshop”, with the goal of providing a professional network for the next generation of waterfowl conservationists, aviculturists, and biologists.


More than 70 delegates from around the world met in Scotland Neck, North Carolina to receive updates about important waterfowl conservation projects, discuss captive propagation techniques, learn about veterinary care from experienced avian vets, and evaluate the best ways to educate students and the public about waterfowl husbandry and conservation.
