Summer is just around the corner, which means not only the emergence of lush shades of green in the landscape, but also a time when the animal kingdom prepares for new offspring. Amongst the first are the flamingos at zoo that are currently brooding.
In the past two weeks, 16 flamingo chicks have hatched from their eggs. The little newborns at the zoo are grey, fluffy and still somewhat wobbly on their legs. Others are expected to follow as the graceful, flame-coloured birds are currently incubating more eggs in their cone-shaped mud nest.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
