      Nice exhibit, how many zoos have whooping cranes these days ?
    • Pleistohorse
      I don't know. San Antonio has had them from 1984 at least. If memory serves it was the only zoo to hold them back in the 1980's.

      About 3 years ago i saw a pair of whooping cranes at milwaukee zoo but in a caged in aviary. The national zoo in D.C. seems to have a pair,but this exhibit seems to be the best.

      San Antonio Zoo, Calgary Zoo, Smithsonian's National Zoo, Lowry Park Zoo (still have theirs?), Milwaukee Zoo and Zoo New England - Stone Zoo. International Crane Foundation also houses them as does Audubon's ACRES facility. There could be others but I am unsure of non-Zoo related facilities.

      I believe Jacksonville Zoo still have them as well - I saw them there (and at Lowry Park) in late 2013. Lovely birds - and even more so for me as they were the last 'new' crane species I had left to see. :)

      Audubon Zoo has Whooping Cranes as well, in addition to the ACRES facility (which is non-public)
