Critically endangered (IUCN) and federally endangered Edwards’s pheasants (Lophura edwardsi) at the Sunset Zoo. The male has the color, while the hen is brown. This bird is so rare it’s now nearly gone in the wild. Zoos play a critical role as modern day arks, preserving species that would otherwise be lost to extinction.
