Season 5: Episode 5

Chick Mate

We got a lesson in breeding this week on THE ZOO as we watched a white-naped crane that was hatched at the Bronx Zoo move to the Beardsley Zoo to be paired with a male there for breeding. The Bronx Zoo is part of a network of accredited zoos that participate in Species Survival Plans, a cooperative breeding program administered by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums designed to enhance the genetic viability and demographic stability of animal populations. Here’s an earlier look at the white-naped crane when she was a fluffy chick.
