Military Base project continuing
Friends of the Wild Whoopers is continuing to work with military bases to protect and improve Whooping Crane “stopover habitats”. These habitats are essential along the seven state Whooping Crane migration corridor. “Stopover habitats” allow the cranes to stop and rest during their 2,500 mile migration from Canada to the Texas coast.
Stopover habitats are being lost on private lands due to continuing development. Fortunately the U.S. military teamed up with us to help develop stopover habitats on military lands. To date we have been most successful with the stopover habitat project.
Your assistance needed
Now, we need assistance to continue traveling to the military installations. Our staff has been personally paying for travel and not asking for reimbursement. Thankfully one person who believes in our “stopover habitat” project did pay for our recent travel expenses to Oklahoma and Kansas. We believe many of you will also be willing to chip in to help cover travel costs.
