About the collection

Our collection | Conservation breeding

Harteman Wildfowl is a small private non-profit collection of waterfowl, runned by Jan Harteman. What started of as a hobby grew into a lifelong passion for waterfowl and their conservation. I share this passion through my personal website and social media channels, as well as amongst other things, being a board member of the International Wild Waterfowl Association, Aviornis International Netherlands and Taxon Advisory Groups. 


Mission statement

I want to contribute to knowledge, education and conservation of the world's waterfowl. For some species I contribute by being part of EAZA’s Ex-situ Programmes (EEP EEP Logo) and monitoring programmes (Mon-T); as well as directly contributing to ex-situ conservation by keeping and breeding threatened species in my private collection – keeping breeding records, gathering data and images about these species in my private collection – and educating the general public through my personal website, social media channels, magazines and the IUCN-SSC Threatened Waterfowl Specialists Group. 

Being part of the EAZA's EEP studbooks, my facilities have been checked by the studbook keepers to verify the quality of the aviaries. Alongside I agreed to fulfil obligations like annual reporting and data sharing through ZIMS, medical research, post mortem research and keeping offspring at our location until the studbook keeper has found a suitable new collection. As a private aviculturist I am reaching out to these professional EEP programs and want to be a part of them, and species conservation in general, for the long run.
