Endangered sage grouse eggs from the wild hatch successfully at Calgary Zoo


Recommended Posts

One of Canada’s most endangered birds has several new little ones to add to its population.

 

The Calgary Zoo says it is raising 11 greater sage grouse chicks that hatched from eggs collected in the wild.

 

Zoo officials say it's the first step toward establishing a captive population that may ultimately save the sage grouse from extinction.
