Whooping Crane Migration in Progress
14 young Whooping Cranes are on their way to Florida, led by an ultralite plane with a pilot dressed as a Whooping Crane. (Hey, we don't make this stuff up, and this really does work!) See the pic.
Operation Migration has played a leading role in the reintroduction of endangered Whooping Cranes into eastern North America since 2001. In the 1940s the species was reduced to just 15 birds.
They need your help! Operation Migration relies on grants and contributions from individuals and foundations to continue their work. You can help by clicking on www.operationmigration.org and following their progress, and even by making a donation to keep these birds flying. (Yes, even the one in the bird suit.) :)
Operation Migration is a non-profit organization in the United States and Canada. Your tax-deductible contributions help keep this exciting wildlife reintroduction literally, "In The Air".
