“Only” Threatened? Update on the Whooping Crane Reintroduction
Can we imagine a world where the Whooping Crane is only threatened, not endangered? Since the first cohort of Whooping Cranes was introduced to the Wisconsin landscape in 2001, just over 300 birds have been released by various rearing and release methods. Fast forward to 2019; just how are we doing towards the goal of downlisting? There are now over 25 breeding pairs, and many youngsters scattered about Wisconsin, and other states! But, that does not mean the project is without challenges… There have been issues with nesting and chick production, complicated by moves to a new release areas and amended release methods. Join us for a look at the trials and tribulation of bringing a charismatic species back from the brink.
