Animals & Attractions

In our collection 

We are home to two Himalayan monals here at Highland Wildlife Park - a male and a female. 

Where to see them 

Our duo can be found in the walkaround area of the park beside our wildcats. 

Fun facts 

  • The Himalayan monal also known as an  Impeyan monal or Impeyan pheasant
  • They are native to Himalayan forests and are even the national bird of Nepal  
  • Like other pheasants, Himalayan monal males have more colourful plumage feathers which are blue, green, purple, red, and orange, whereas the females have more muted tones and tend to have brown, black, and white plumage feathers  

How we’re helping  

Our Himalayan monals are monitored as part of the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP). 

As a wildlife conservation charity, we care for both the animals here at the park and work to protect endangered species around the world. 

From providing genetics expertise and veterinary health, to protecting wild places with local conservation partners, and even restoring threatened species to the wild, we are active where we are needed most.
