Hoosiers for Whoopers! The information presented on this web page is intended to help spread the word about the endangered Whooping Crane (Grus americana) in Indiana.
Indiana is both a migration stopover and a wintering area for Whooping Cranes, the rarest crane species in the world. Whooping Cranes are a federally listed endangered species. They are what we refer to as an umbrella species because if you protect the umbrella species, all the other species and habitat that fall under the umbrella are protected as well.
