Whooping Crane Day
-- Kent Clegg came all the way from Idaho to receive a signed and framed copy of the student-initiated House Joint Memorial 12. HJM12 establishes the first state Whooping Crane Day and honors Mr. Clegg's achievement. Mr. Clegg is the biologist who led endangered whooping cranes behind his ultralight aircraft from his ranch to the Bosque del Apache. For the entire year, Wild Friends has focused on whooping cranes, resulting in the passage of this historic legislation.

-- Millions of people know a little bit about efforts to save the whooping crane, thanks to the movie Fly Away Home and annual news stories about ultralight planes leading migratory flocks. But few realize in the spring of 1941, the population of these magnificent birds—pure white with black wingtips, standing five feet tall with a seven-foot wingspan—had reached an all-time low of fifteen. Written off as a species destined for extinction, the whooping crane has made a slow but unbelievable comeback over the last seven decades.

Image: Saving the Whooping Crane (On My Own Science) | Paperback: 48 pages | by Susan E. Goodman (Author), Phyllis V. Saroff (Illustrator). Publisher: First Avenue Editions TM; 1 edition (August 1, 2008)Saving the Whooping Crane -- Whooping cranes once lived all over North America. But by the 1940s, only one tiny flock was left. These beautiful birds were in danger of dying out. Scientists decided to start a second flock of whooping cranes, but they had a serious problem to overcome. Whooping cranes need to migrate. They live up north in summer, then fly south to spend winter in warmer locations. Usually, young cranes follow older cranes when they migrate. How would the scientists teach the new flock where to go?
