With the support of Duke Energy we are thrilled to offer viewers a front row seat through the Whooping CraneCam! For the first time, online viewers and craniacs will be able to watch as we condition and train the Class of 2010, in preparation for the southward journey this fall when our ultralight-aircraft will guide them to their new winter home in Florida.
Some Things to Keep in Mind
As with everything we do, weather will play a big factor in the reliability of the camera and streaming broadcast.
The broadcast WILL be down at times; either due to weather, regular maintenance or while in transit during the fall migration. We appreciate your understanding and patience in this regard.
Beginning early to mid-October, and pending connectivity at our remote stopover locations, online viewers may be able to watch each morning’s departure as the cranes and planes make their way south beginning in Wisconsin. Progress is entirely weather dependant, and as such, the journey can take between 60 to 90 days to complete.Weather permitting the CraneCam will also deliver views of the Class of 2010 in their travel pen at the conclusion of each migration flight leg.
Acquisition of the CraneCam was made possible with the incredible support and generosity of Duke Energy - YOUR support will keep the CraneCam rolling; providing online viewers a unique vantage point from which to witness Whooping crane behavior.
Take me BACK to the CraneCam!
