Whooping crane conservation in Wisconsin
April 15 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Join Whooping Crane Outreach Coordinator Stephanie Schmidt to learn about the International Crane Foundation’s whooping crane reintroduction and community building efforts in Wisconsin and beyond. The whooping crane is a charismatic wetland species and a large white bird around 5 feet tall, making it the tallest bird in North America. In the 1940s the population reached an all-time low of around 20 birds, but through federal protections and collaborative efforts, this population is now around 800 individuals in the wild and in captivity. The International Crane Foundation is also working with communities in the Whooping crane’s flyways to create stewardship and guardianship for these incredible birds.
