Whooping Crane Recovery Program
Only hundreds of these graceful birds live in the wild. That might sound low, but it’s actually quite impressive. With help from conservation organizations, including the Calgary Zoo, whooping cranes have recovered from an all-time low in the 1940’s, when the number of wild whooping cranes in the world dipped to only 21!
The Calgary Zoo’s Whooping Crane Recovery Program is proudly funded by ConocoPhillips Canada.
