    Hi, I was wondering about some information concerning Siberian cranes. I was under the impression that AZA zoos have bred and released some of these cranes into the wild, but could not find any information on it. I know there are only 22 in the US population. If AZA zoos have in fact released any Siberian cranes into the wild, I would love to know which zoos participated, and how many cranes were released.

    Thanks

    This is just a guess, but the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
