Why become a “Friend of the Wild Whoopers”?
The majestic wild Whooping Cranes that nest in Wood Buffalo National Park, Canada and spend their winters on Aransas Wildlife Refuge, Texas coast are endangered. They are the symbol of conservation in North America and they need our help. Actually, whooping cranes are fully capable of taking care of themselves with one major exception. That exception is human destruction of wetland habitats that the cranes need. Only humans can solve this dilemma.
So this is where you can help. Become a “Whooper Friend” and join the effort to acquire essential diminishing habitats. Whooping crane summer nesting habitat on Wood Buffalo is secure thanks to Canadians, so no problem there. The critical need is to secure stopover resting habitats along the 2,500 mile migration corridor and winter habitat around Aransas Refuge.
So, please join with Friends of the Wild Whoopers (FOTWW) and let’s assist the whoopers. We are focusing on acquiring habitat because it is the weak link in the chain for protecting the only remaining wild whooping crane flock on earth. And just think, when we acquire wetlands for whoopers we will also be helping many other wild critters that use the same wetlands.
Have you been fortunate enough to see North America’s largest bird – the whooping crane? If not, we hope you will someday. However, some people who become “Whooper Friends” may never see a whooping crane. Yet, they still become involved because they are aware that these special birds need their support. It’s the spot-on thing to do.
Compassionate people who support charities of all kinds just understand the needs even though they may never become personally involved. So, please become a “Whooper Friend” and donate to a worthy conservation effort. Wetland habitats that whooping cranes need are being lost every day. Humans are destroying these habitats and only humans can protect them.
