After suffering a dramatic decline in the 19th century, Whooping Cranes have made a recovery in Texas thanks to the collaborative work of governmental and conservation organizations. As the population grows, the birds will need more high-quality habitat, and all should continue to support this “comeback” species. Join us February 26th to learn about the history and the future of Whooping Cranes with Anna Turkett from the International Crane Foundation.
