Australian White Ibis

The ibises (collective plural ibis; classical plurals ibides and ibes ) are a group of long-legged wading birds in the family Threskiornithidae.

They all have long down curved bills, and usually feed as a group, probing mud for food items, usually crustaceans. Most species nest in trees, often with spoonbills or herons.

The word ibis comes from Greek and Latin, and probably from the Ancient Egyptian. According to Josephus, Moses employed ibes against serpents during a desert campaign into Ethiopia in his early life.


Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, and others like them, are fast becoming a last refuge for many species as their natural homes are destroyed by the greed of man.

Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens is a strong supporter of The World Zoo Conservation Strategy of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

The collection of animals at Thrigby was the first to be signed over in entirety to the Joint Management of Species Programme.
