Captive Breeding Facilities / Partners

The Pateke Captive Breeding program could is comprised of both private individuals and Zoos/Wildlife Parks each producing young juvenile birds on a voluntary basis each year so they can be released back out into the wild to start new wild sustainable populations for the future of the species.  With an estimated cost of approximately $650 to produce a teal ready for release back into the wild, collectively the captive facilities who are are our partners in this reintroduction program roughly donate $105,000 – $130,000 in-kind generosity.  Without these wonderful people and facilities the recovery program would not be as successful as it has been.

Below is a map of all the captive breeding facilities in New Zealand, and links to each of the public breeding facilities where you can go and see Brown Teal in real life.
