This breathtaking video captures the majestic flight of the whooping crane, a species pushed to the brink of extinction in the 1940s due to hunting and loss of habitat. Over the last seven decades, conservation efforts have raised their numbers from a low of 21 cranes in 1941 to an estimated 437 in 2011, with another 165 in captivity. Conservation efforts work! Together we can ensure the survival of the whooping crane for generations to come.
