Working with the International Crane Foundation and Operation Migration was a unique and wonderful experience. Their dedication to their work inspires everyone they cross paths with. In Saving the Ghost Birds, I attempted to capture this passion while highlighting some of the unique and sometimes unlikely individuals who have been paramount to the whooping crane recovery effort.
Years of scientific research and creative ingenuity have led one flock of birds from the edge of oblivion and into our hearts.
