Sprina Liu, Bird Curator
The Dallas Zoo
Whooping Cranes are North America’s tallest birds, and one of our most endangered. By the mid-90’s their population plummeted to a low of only 15 birds, due to habitat loss and over-hunting. Thanks to conservation efforts, over 500 birds persist in the wild today. The Texas Gulf Coast is the winter home to Cranes who return to the same nesting areas and mate for life.
Come join us and learn about the new Whooping Crane Center of Texas, a 5-acre breed-and-release conservation facility designed with help from Crane experts and staffed by the Dallas Zoo’s experienced bird department.
