No transportation system carries visitors around. Its wading bird seashore features artificial waves and dunes. The mid s were the period of fastest development in the park's history. In spacious flight aviaries and paddocks blacknecked and Siberian white cranes were bred for the first time outside their home countries.
On the South Sea expedition to Tonga archipelago, a fauna status survey, educational campaigns, setting up breeding facilities for endangered birds, and translocation projects were carried out. European avifauna is displayed in multi-species habitat aviaries. In Germany, re-introduction of peregrine falcons is supported. Because technical constructions like cooling units are rejected, only moderate climate penguins can be kept. Despite remote location and winter closing, it annually attracts some million visitors due to its feathered inhabitants from all continents and climates but also its gardens and historical buildings.
In the park's last Spix macaw was given to a conservation program. From the early years on, innovative exhibits were substantial in the park's development. Amongst the oldest parts still to be seen are landscaped ponds where six species of pelican are held.
In vast off limit breeding aviaries some hatchlings out of more than species are reared annually. Here several species of hornbills were bred first, and a special enclosure for shoebilled storks has been constructed in order to breed this endangered bird for the first time in captivity. The world's first captive propagation of green-billed toucan, Andean ibis, and secretary bird happened in Walsrode. The walk-through section with free-flying birds like great blue turaco, sunbittern, Luzon bleeding-heart, and Bali starling, became prototype to many similar buildings.
This is about one third of the species kept, extraordinary for a bird park. Emphasis is given to authentic local architecture as well. In almost endless rows of aviaries rare pheasants, such as bulwer's wattled, great argus, and several forms of peacock pheasants and tragopans, are held.
In contrast, research and breeding efforts in rare birds are pursued intensively. Crowned pigeons, quails, turacos, and singing birds are kept here, and probably the most comprehensive collection of hokkos currassows.
Catering for the visitors was always an important element and includes three restaurants, a spacious adventure playground, and a large souvenir shop that offers a broad range of expert books. Under its macrolon roof a lagoon landscape has been created, decorated with original wood sculptures, traditional buildings, and a temple wall.
Here the history of keeping home birds is presented, showing cages from four centuries as decorations, crafts, and transportation containers as well as sculptures and graphics. Both park and visitor numbers grew rapidly. Few years later a giant walk-in aviary was constructed where storks, ibis, spoonbills, and many others thrive in breeding colonies.
Here also a vast collection of European and tropical owls is situated, as well as rare marine ducks. Most of them breed regularly, as brown pelicans for the first time in Europe. Raptor aviaries became inhabited by rarely seen birds of prey, showing ornate hawk-eagle, bateleur, Andean condor, king vulture, and recently Steller's sea eagle.
Amongst the projects is the establishment of Tram Chim reserve for eastern sarus cranes in Vietnam. Walsrode Birdpark Vogelpark Walsrode Walsrode birdpark has the most comprehensive avian collection in the world, presenting birds of species in countless aviaries, enclosures, and tropical halls. Not only birds are attracting visitors, many just come for the annual rhododendron blooming, the roses, azalea or tulips, set amongst water fountains and precious trees.
