The Regal Swan® Foundation, Inc. is committed to providing humane treatment and veterinary medical care for swans worldwide (both captive and wild), through education, research, conservation, swan rescue and swan product development.
"Swans of The World Habitat"® is an elite designation endowed by The Regal Swan® Foundation to the OWNER with the highest recognition of a swan habitat in which all seven species of swans are nurtured and cared for in ONE location. More importantly, it is a swan habitat in which the OWNER conscientiously works to achieve this designation, adopts and enforces all RSF Policies, Procedures, and Practices for swan habitat conseservation.
Conservation and preservation projects for swans within their natural habitats are crucial goals of The Regal Swan® Foundation, Inc. In order to provide these necessary research grounds for RSF research teams to study swan species, the RSF co-establishes swan habitats with OWNERS around the world. In addition, these swan habitats not only showcase various swan species to wild bird lovers everywhere, but educate humankind about the critical need for their preservation and the conservation of their natural habitats.
