Operation Migration has played a lead role in the reintroduction of endangered Whooping cranes into eastern North America since 2001. In the 1940s the species was reduced to just 15 birds.
Using ultralight aircraft, Operation Migration pilots act as
surrogate parents and guide captive-hatched and imprinted Whooping cranes along a
planned migration route beginning in Wisconsin and ending in Florida
- as depicted in the Columbia Pictures film
Fly Away Home.
We need your help! Operation Migration relies on contributions from individuals and foundations to continue our work. You can help ensure the Whooping crane survives for future generations by calling 800-675-2618, or visiting

organizations and government

crane from extinction.
