Whooping Cranes

Side view of 2 white whooping cranes.

Whooping cranes are rare and endangered beauties.

Once thriving, whooping cranes are now the rarest species of crane and North America's most endangered native bird. You can learn more about these birds and see two of these rare beauties at Audubon Zoo. With the help of strong conservation efforts there is hope. In 2016 a pair of Whooping cranes raised their chick in the wild in Louisiana for the first time in 75 years.
