We are occasionally contacted by people who have raised Paradise Ducklings and would very much like to know where they ended up and whether or not they survived; we also hear from people who have been settled upon by obviously-tame ducks and wonder where they've come from. This page is designed to attempt reunions in such cases.

Female Paradise duck found: "Heard through community groups her mate was run over a month ago. She seems distressed, wants to be fed, flies up at our window (open or closed) like she wants in."

Female Paradise duck found St Martins area, near the Heathcote river, Christchurch. Lame on one leg, looks like an old healed fracture. Seems fairly tame. Doesn't appear to have a mate. Any info would be appreciated!
