Livingston Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy

The mission of Livingston Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy (LRWC) is to conserve waterfowl and wetlands through research, education, and conservation action. LRWC houses one of the largest and most diverse collections of waterfowl in the US, a flock of 70 species totaling over 500 birds! As a breeding facility, LRWC helps maintain genetic diversity in captive populations, contributes to Species Survival Plans, and participates in Captive Release Programs. LRWC also partners with researchers studying waterfowl and their conservation. LRWC provides a unique chance to study living examples of avian biodiversity firsthand, inspiring a greater appreciation for birds and the environment. LRWC offers Environmental Education Programs for everyone from elementary school students to adults—at LRWC, in classrooms, and now over the web to anywhere in the world. LRWC is open for public visitation, providing visitors the chance to learn about waterfowl, wetlands, and the efforts to conserve them.
