There are currently 17 fluffy orange chicks being raised by adult whooping cranes at the captive breeding facilities and in September we’ll be releasing them as tall, gangly whooping crane colts in Wisconsin.
From that point on they will be on their own but like any ‘parent’ we do like to keep track of them. Luckily, technology allows us to track them remotely and from the comfort of our desks IF we can fund these important tracking devices.
This year, Operation Migration has committed to raise the funds needed to acquire five GSM remote tracking units. To help accomplish this, we’ve setup a fun, social campaign on GivingGrid.
The idea is that you select a square representing the dollar amount you can contribute. Then you have the ability to upload a photo – perhaps of you, or your pet, or a place you’ve visited… Just something fun!
Depending on the level of support you choose, you qualify to receive a thank you gift and there are a number of them available.
Why not have a look for yourself? Please share the campaign with your family and social media friends using this link: https://www.givinggrid.com/cranetracking/
We have just $6,000 more to raise!
