Whooping Cranes Biology and Conservation

Whooping Cranes: Biology and Conservation covers one of the most endangered birds in North America and the research and conservation activity being conducted. It summarizes current biological information on Whooping Cranes and provides the basis for future research. The book concentrates on work completed in the past 20 years on population biology, behavior and social structure, habitat use, disease and health, captive breeding, and Whooping Crane conservation. Information presented comes from the study and management of remnant and reintroduced populations of Whooping Cranes in the field, from experimentation and breeding of captive Whooping Cranes, reintroducing the species to the wild, and challenges. The book seeks to inform and galvanize action dedicated to meeting the challenges faced by Whooping Crane managers and conservationists. Thus, it describes one model of endangered species conservation and restoration that will interest a wide audience. Presents a comprehensive treatment of the biology and ecology of Whooping Cranes, including biology of both remnant and reintroduced populations of Whooping Cranes Describes efforts over the past 45 years on conservation and the challenges of reintroducing an endangered species Includes chapters from a variety of disciplinary and scale perspectives, ranging from evolution, to population ecology, behavior, habitat use, large landscape conservation, conflict, and conservation efforts Features contributions that are readable, yet technically complete and fully referenced Provides an example of partnership and collegial action that integrates information produced by scientific research and operational wildlife management Edited and written by the leading Whooping Crane scholars and practitioners focused on this high-profile species of conservation concern

The tension between wildlife protection under the Endangered Species Act and water management in the Platte River Basin has existed for more than 25 years. The Platte River provides important habitat for migratory and breeding birds, including three endangered or threatened species: the whooping crane, the northern Great Plains population of the piping plover, and the interior least tern. The leading factors attributed to the decline of the cranes are historical overhunting and widespread habitat destruction and, for the plovers and

Through twists of good fortune, each of these terminal migratory places is protected from human encroachment—by a U.S. national wildlife refuge on the one hand and a Canadian national park on the other.

"Unbridled, mankind is unique in having the ability to erase the cranes, one or all, from our world. Ironically, it is also within the power of man to recognize the beauty and worth of something not our kin (or stated more correctly, to recognize our kinship to a dissimilar species), to recognize and revere. This book is dedicated to these lovely creatures, and to those persons living, remembered, and yet unborn who will continue the struggle to ensure a world
