Attwater’s Prairie Chicken Cam

Since 1995, the Houston Zoo has raised and released Attwater’s prairie chickens into the wild, preventing their extinction!

Did you know the Houston Zoo and NASA have a partnership to save the Attwater’s prairie chicken? At NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Zoo staff maintain a special breeding facility for these endangered birds. With this webcam, you can get a live, behind-the-scenes look at the Attwater’s prairie chickens housed at NASA!

Camera hours: live feed from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. CST
