Patuxent Wildlife Research Center

A very special delivery.

Whooping Cranes raised at Patuxent are either released in Wisconsin to join a migratory group of Whooping Cranes or sent to Louisiana to join
a flock of non-migratory Whooping Cranes.  Both groups of cranes are shipped on a private jet to ensure a speedy journey.
