Just one migratory flock of Whooping Cranes is left in the world. About one of these majestic whoopers is killed each year when they crash into power lines, hurtling this endangered species closer and closer to extinction.
Whooping Cranes are one of hundreds of species embarking on their twice-yearly migration—and we must act now to ensure their safe passage.
Like the Whooping Crane, the rainbow-colored Painted Bunting is facing a manmade hazard as it heads to its wintering grounds. Lured by artificial light, heartbreaking numbers of these night-time travelers crash into buildings.
Also vulnerable are Great Blue Herons, which fall prey to the waste oil pits created during oil extraction. Mistaking these open sludge ponds for welcome sources of water, birds get stuck and die in the toxic residue.
I can’t stand by and do nothing in the face of this needless slaughter. I know you can’t either, Jean, so I urge you to make your gift right now. Let’s protect birds wherever we can—in communities and cities large and small, in boardrooms, and in the halls of Congress.
Don’t miss this opportunity to double your generosity. Don’t let the clock run out!
