From the Field Webinar – Predatory Occupancy on the Breeding Grounds of the Whooping Crane Eastern Migratory Population
March 14 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Despite over 20 years of reintroduction efforts, the Eastern Migratory Population of Whooping Cranes faces challenges with low recruitment due to low rates of chicks surviving to independence. Predation has been found to be one of the primary causes of mortality for crane chicks. This presentation will cover Nicole Gordon’s master’s thesis research assessing the presence and diversity of potential mammalian predator species in relation to Whooping Crane chick-rearing areas and chick survival.
