Great Egret

Gret Egret.

A tall, stately white wader of quiet waters — and its comeback is a stunning conservation success story. Once in danger of extinction due to its use of feathers in fashion, the Great Egret has made a spectacular recovery, thanks to the support of wildlife lovers like you.

When you adopt a Great Egret, you help preserve the habitats this beautiful bird calls home. You’ll receive:

  • A lifelike plush Great Egret that plays a recording of its call when squeezed
  • Adoption certificate and personalized letter from the National Audubon Society
