Alive! In America's Delta: The Whooping Crane's Majestic Return DVD

Alive! In America's Delta: The Whooping Crane's Majestic Return DVD

Trace the landmark effort to reintroduce the whooping crane into Louisiana’s wetlands. Seventy years ago these 5-foot tall stately birds were on the brink of extinction, with only 16 left in the world. Trek along with Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries biologists and their partners and witness their painstaking efforts to reintroduce the whooping crane into Louisiana’s wetlands for the first time in half a century. 

Follow the birds from hatchlings at a national research facility in Maryland, through the delicate dance to adapt to their new Louisiana home in a carefully constructed pen, where people in crane suits -- worn to protect the birds from human contact – oversee their historic, but fragile homecoming.
