Default Whooping Cranes Head Back to Louisiana

Conservationists hope fourth attempt to reintroduce endangered bird to the wild will be a success -

Whooping cranes head back to Louisiana : Nature News


"Officials with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) are finalizing plans to release a small flock of whooping cranes (Grus americana) in a protected wetland, in what could be a promising step towards long-term viability for an endangered species. The move would represent the return of a long-lost native — absent from the state for more than 60 years."
