Hoosiers for Whoopers

Hoosiers for Whoopers! Please join us in creating awareness for the endangered Whooping Crane (Grus americana) in Indiana. Our state is both a migration stopover and a wintering area for Whooping Cranes, the world’s rarest crane species.

Many experts consider Whooping Cranes to be an umbrella species. An umbrella species is a wildlife species whose protection leads to the conservation of other species and habitats. In the case of the Whooping Crane, the protection of these charismatic cranes has led to the protection of other wildlife that depend on wetland habitats. Thus, federally protecting the Whooping Crane is beneficial for wildlife and habitat conservation.

Please take a look around to learn more about Whooping Cranes, wetland conservation and what you can do to help!
