status: critically endangered numbers: In the late 1800’s early 1900’s there were believed to be 15,000-20,000 whooping cranes. By 1941 there were only 15 birds left. Conservation efforts for that single remaining flock of 15 have resulted in a total number of 214 whooping cranes alive in 2005. A single flock is biologically precarious. Creating a new migratory flock of whooping cranes required teaching young chicks how to migrate without the assistance of adult birds. Scientists decided to use an ultralight aircraft as a teaching tool to show the young whooping cranes how to fly from western Florida to Wisconsin. As of 2009, there are 77 whooping cranes that once followed a plane from Florida to Wisconsin and back each year. That program is no longer in existence. At 5 ft tall 7 1/2 ft. wing span, they are the largest birds in North America. - National Wildlife Federation
