The Flamingo Resource Centre (FRC) is a web-based collection of resources and information related to flamingos.

The FRC was created to provide one place where information and resources relating to all flamingo species in all parts of the world could be gathered together and made available to researchers, conservationists, flamingo keepers and all interested parties.


The site is only as useful as the resources that are submitted, so please contact us if you have resources or information to submit.

While we are always looking for resources on any topic, we are currently making a special effort to gather resources on the following topics:

  • Recipes for hand-rearing formulas

  • Photos of interpretation used at zoos: signage, information boards, etc

  • Photos of flamingo exhibits and the corresponding breeding results

  • Contact details for zoo suppliers

Do you have resources on these topics? Please submit them.

Thanks to those who have already contributed!
