New Whooping CraneCam Comes Online

from Wildlife Promise

Whooper Operation Migration’s CraneCam is now broadcasting live video around the world, offering watchers views of one of the world’s most endangered birds, the Whooping crane.

Operation Migrations USA via PR.com reports:

“Viewers can now watch live online as Operation Migration’s pilots and crane handlers condition the juvenile Whooping cranes that form the ‘Class of 2009’ for the biggest adventure of their lives – their first migration. To tune in, visit http://www.operationmigration.org/crane-cam.html

Beginning early to mid-October, pending connectivity at remote stopover locations, “Craniacs” and online viewers may be able to watch each morning’s departure as the cranes and planes make their way south – a journey of over 1,200 miles. Because progress is entirely weather dependent, the journey from Wisconsin to Florida can take between 60 to 90 days to complete.”

Editor note: somtimes things are pretty slow at the site!
