The Breeding and Research Center (BRC) is the heart of Conservation in Cebu Safari & Adventure Park.
The BRC aims to promote wildlife conservation and increase the number of populations of the incredible avian species that live within the sanctuary.
It is our mission to showcase our success in breeding, instill a deeper appreciation of avian wildlife, and educate the public of the conservation efforts of Cebu Safari & Adventure Park.
OUR SUCCESS STORIES
The BRC protects wildlife and promotes biodiversity.
Here are example of the works of our Breeding and Research Center:
A. We do Multiple Clutching, it is when you want a species of birds to lay more than two clutches. Eggs are pulled out to be artificially incubated and this will induce the hen to lay another egg.
B. We take care of eggs of breeders that do not have maternal instinct. The eggs are turned over to BRC for a chance of survival.
C. BRC supports conservation breeding. Progenies can be used for exchange programs to other zoos for a new bloodline in order to avoid inbreeding or maybe for the purpose of genetic pooling.
D. The foundation of BRC is always research. Proper documentation and record can be useful in writing technical papers that can be presented in zoo conferences.
