Adopt an Animal: Chilean Flamingo
Your Adopt-an-Animal donation will be used to support these beautiful birds and further the San Francisco Zoological Society’s mission to connect people to wildlife, inspire caring for nature and advance conservation action. All sales are final.
During certain times of the year here at the San Francisco Zoo you may spot a tiny Chilean flamingo chick peering out from beneath the wing of a parent. In 2000, after years of unsuccessful breeding attempts, the nesting site was moved to the front of the exhibit and covered with special nesting mud, and the Chilean flamingos have bred successfully multiple times since.
