Planes and Cranes – A Story of Hope for the Endangered Whooping Crane 
With John Christian, Asst. Regional Dir. for Migratory Birds, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 
  
The decades-long effort to reintroduce a second population of Whooping Cranes is becoming one of conservation’s success stories. John Christian has an insider’s view of the broad partnership of groups working on the reintroduction. John, who works for the Service at the regional office at Fort Snelling, works closely with Operation Migration, the outfit that leads young whooping cranes via ultralight aircraft on their first migration to Florida. 
  
During his presentation, John may even don the crane costume required of all those who work with the young birds to prevent their becoming imprinted on humans. He plans to tell about the dedicated people who faced amazing challenges to create a second migratory flock of cranes in the eastern United States. The project has been described as “the wildlife equivalent of putting a man on the moon,” but challenges still remain. 
  
Everyone is invited to this free Saint Paul Audubon program on Thursday, September 9 at 7:00 p.m. at Fairview Community Center, 1910 West County Road B in Roseville, just west of Fairview Avenue. The event is open to the public, with free parking. A social time with refreshments begins at 6:45.  For more information, call Val Cunningham at 651-645-5230.
