Every year, whooping cranes travel over 4,000 km from their summer home in Aransas, Texas to return to their nesting grounds in Wood Buffalo National Park. Understand more about these endangered, migratory birds and why there is nowhere else in the world they go to lay their eggs and raise their chicks. A knowledgeable guide will help you get familiar with everything from the type of wetland habitat they prefer, to their favourite travel itinerary and foods they like to eat. The fortunate and astute observers may spot a whooping crane flying overhead or in the distance. For a guaranteed glimpse of a whooping crane we recommend the Calgary Zoo or a wintertime boat tour in Port Aransas, Texas – only a very lucky few will catch sight of them in their summer home.
