When the clock struck twelve last night, people all over the world cheered and wished each other a Happy New Year. For some, this event is no more than a change of a calendar, while for others the dawning of a New Year symbolizes the beginning of a ‘better tomorrow’.
Each year we worry about garnering enough funds to meet our obligations, and to keep our promises to Whooping cranes and to you, our supporters. Each year that becomes more difficult.
But each year, thanks to YOU, more Whooping cranes are added to those already wild and migrating in eastern North America. YOU are the power behind Operation Migration! Last year as with those that came before, it was your financial support that allowed us to achieve our goals in 2012.
With the dawn of the New Year we at OM will say goodbye to 2012 by remembering great moments shared with our Field Journal readers and CraneCam viewers. Without your commitment and generosity our staff and volunteers simply could not have done their work. Know that the achievements are yours. It is YOU who makes success happen.
On this first day of 2013 we wish for everyone a reason to smile each and every day. And for you and for Whooping cranes we wish ‘better tomorrows’ this year and for years and years into the future.
From the OM family to yours….. Happy New Year everyone!
