Avian Health Center - Tracy Aviary

Avian Health Center - Tracy Aviary
Salt Lake City, UT (2015)






Providing a vet clinic on the grounds of the Tracy Aviary directly benefits the health and welfare of all their avian residents. The clinic is used to quarantine new birds until the staff is sure they don't harbor any illness that could spread to the rest of the bird population.  It is also used for treating injured or sick birds.  For the aforementioned reasons, the Avian Health Center is arguably the most important support building on the Tracy Aviary campus.
