Bird Club: “Only” Threatened? Update on Whooping Crane Reintroduction

April 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Can we imagine a world where the Whooping Crane is only threatened, not endangered? Since the first Whooping Cranes were introduced to the Wisconsin landscape in 2001, just over 300 birds have been released. Fast forward to 2020; Just how are we doing towards the goal of downlisting? Davin Lopez of the Wisconsin DNR and Anne Lacy of the International Crane Foundation will describe ongoing research to find out the causes for nest failure and low chick production, as well as the results from new release areas and release methods. The trials and tribulations of bringing a charismatic species back from the brink are a captivating story.
