Presenter: Stephanie M. Schmidt, Whooping Crane Outreach Coordinator for the International Crane Foundation

Presentation Description:

The International Crane Foundation (ICF), headquartered in Baraboo, Wisconsin, is committed to conserving all 15 species of cranes worldwide and the watersheds, ecosystems, and flyways they depend on. This work includes safeguarding the future of the Sandhill Crane and the endangered Whooping Crane who seasonally call Wisconsin home. In this webinar, presented by ICF, you will learn how to identify Sandhill Cranes and Whooping Cranes by sight and sound, and explore the historic decline of Sandhill Cranes and Whooping Cranes, the legislation that aids in their protection, the reintroduction program that brought Whooping Cranes back to the eastern United States, and opportunities to advocate for the cranes of Wisconsin as they face increasing threats of poaching, habitat loss, and human-wildlife conflicts.
