Audubon Texas
Celebrates Whooping Cranes  

 
An Adventure in Survival - A History of Conservation Efforts for the Whooping Crane

Presented by: Lee Ann Linam
February 16, 2012
, 7 PM
at Trinity River Audubon Center

Lee Ann Johnson Linam literally grew up with whooping cranes.  She spent her teenage years on Aransas National Wildlife Refuge and has also worked for Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as an endangered species biologist in the Wildlife Diversity Program, including time as a member of the Whooping Crane Recovery Team.   

 

Lee Ann's presentation will chronicle the history of the conservation efforts that brought the species from a low of 16 in Texas in the 1940s to approximately 300 cranes in the Aransas flock today, along with notes on the efforts to restore the whooping crane to other parts of North America.
