Friends of the Wild Whoopers, (FOTWW) is joining the millions of people around the world celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by fighting for the future of Whooping Crane habitat along the Central Flyway. To date, FOTWW has evaluated and made recommendations on 41 military bases, 7 of the 8 Native American reservations, and 34 Army Corps Of Engineers lakes in 7 states along the traditional migration corridor. With the wild population increasing and climate change, these stopover locations will serve a more important role as habitat along the Gulf Coast disappears. #EarthDay2020

Great news from Friends of the Wild Whoopers on Earth Day. FOTWW’s excellent work is noteworthy. HABITAT IS THE GREATEST NEED OF THE WILD WHOOPING CRANES. Management recommendations on 41 military bases, 7 of the 8 Native American reservations, and 34 Army Corps Of Engineers lakes in 7 states along the traditional migration corridor is noteworthy. Please continue your tremendous Whooping Crane habitat work.
Happy Earth Day to all of you at FOTWW. For being a small organization, you are doing a HUGE and tremendous job with your “stopover” project. I have been following the travels and evaluations. Keep up the good work. The cranes will appreciate it.
