Whooping Crane Update from Dr. Wade Harrell, U.S. Whooping Crane Recovery Coordinator.

We are still crunching the numbers on the winter whooping crane population estimate and hope to publish it within the next few weeks. We would rather report the best estimate the first time rather than have to revise it later. We understand how important the information is and will make it a priority to circulate the information as soon as it is completed.

Included in the Report

  • Surveys & Monitoring
  • Reports from Outside the Survey Area
  • Count or Estimate?
  • Satellite Tracking Study
  • Precipitation/Salinity
  • Food Abundance
