Adopt a flamingo

Bright, brilliant and bizarre, the flamingo’s life is one of exotic landscapes, vast flocks and the very strangest of rituals. Yet flamingos are in decline.

Help our flamingos

Around the world, flamingos are in decline and their wetland homes are coming under increasing threat. Human encroachment and disturbance of their feeding and breeding grounds, mining for minerals like lithium for use in batteries and climate change are all playing their part. Four of the six species are now of conservation concern, with the Andean flamingo the rarest.

But an adoption like yours means we can continue to perfect the research and conservation techniques we need to help flamingos worldwide and ensure the survival of their wetland habitats. We can also continue our very successful breeding programme at WWT centres, including building our pioneering artificial nest moulds, that help our flamingos breed in just the same way as their cousins in the wild.

Please note that we are currently unable to send adoption boxes outside the UK. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Although you’ll usually see our WWT collections of flamingos standing and sitting, they swim too, which helps keep those long legs sturdy and strong.
