Please Consider a Year End Gift

In just three short days we can rip December off the calendar and begin another year. That is, if you still use a wall calendar… 

365 days. 52 weeks. 12 months. Gone. On January 1st the end of the year seems so far away yet here we are in the final days of 2016 and it feels to me that it zipped by – too fast.

It was definitely a year of change for everyone at Operation Migration as well as our supporters. In the end we, along with our project partners and supporters, succeeded in adding nine young-of-year whooping cranes to the Eastern Migratory Population. 

All nine are currently wintering in suitable locations and in just 12-15 weeks, they’ll begin heading back to central Wisconsin. 

For 2017, we remain committed to growing the Eastern Migratory Population and will need your continued support. 

We hope you will consider a year end gift in support of whooping crane conservation.

    Job well done…

    The buffalo were almost lost due to lack of the knowledge of the gift that they brought by their presence. We know the beauty of these magnificent yet gentle angel birds. Let us not lose them having known the gift of joy and hope they bring to all. Please support OM… they work tirelessly in an effort to give us all that gift of hope…

    So many charities are asking for year-end donations. I am making a big one in early January, to start your new year off right!

    It’s great that there are nine more cranes, and that you guys have survived the enormous changes.

    I assume some cranes have been lost. How does the migratory population now compare to this time last year?
