Heron Video Archive:
Watch wild Great Blue Herons living 90 feet above the Trevor Zoo! Watch them nesting above our Wallaby and Emu enclosure. Herons have been nesting in the trees above the zoo for the past ten years. This project was started in 2014 by Millbrook student John Norfleet. Watch this short film about it.
