There’s no cuter sight than a tiny fluffy chick taking its first wobbly steps, and our duckery is just the place to see it during the summer months.


It’s here that our keepers breed, hatch and raise some of the most endangered waterbirds on the planet as part of WWT’s conservation breeding programme.

These rare species hail from across the globe and by breeding them at WWT Washington, we are contributing to the long-term survival of species which are otherwise threatened in the wild.
