Follow the thrilling adventures of The Waterfowl Man as he evades danger on his mission to protect the birds he so urgently pursued in the wild. Mike Lubbock traverses rivers, jungles, mountains, and ice flows; faced hazards on multiple continents, endures planes crashes and shipwrecks, all to give waterfowl a fighting chance to survive in a world rapidly losing its wilderness places. All the while radically advancing the art of avian husbandry, culminating in building one of the world's largest avian preserves at Sylvan Heights Waterfowl & Bird Park.
