The images from each of the four paintings were transferred to individual banners and together they tell the story of the eastern Whooping Crane re-introduction.
The banners celebrate the National Zoo's Whooping Crane Exhibit and are featured along the walkway at the entrance and exit of the exhibit. Above, the images are in story order representing: 1) Hatched with care, 2) Flying South, 3) Returning North, and 4) A New Spring.
In the video below, Outdoor Wisconsin presents a program that explains the Whooping Crane reintroduction project featuring Operation Migration. Move the video cursor to minute 9:16 to begin with the Operation Migration segment of the video.
