Edward's Pheasant

Natural Habitat

Lowland Forest areas in central Vietnam 

Diet

The diet in the wild is still unknown due to the lack of information about them.  At the zoo they get a mix of pellets, grains and meal worms 

Conservation

Threat Level: Critically Endangered

Declines have been driven by high levels of hunting pressure and lowland forest deterioration.

Here at the Zoo

The two pairs we have at Kirkley Hall Zoo are part of the European Breeding Programme. We hope to successfully breed them in the future
