Countdown to Migration: September 22, 2006
We update the chick’s stories after talking with the pilots and trainers. Last Monday, two chicks refused to follow the ultralight to join the rest of this year’s flock. Click to see if your favorite chick was one of them: #3
While you're on the biography pages, look for some answers to three new questions at the link below. Dig into Crane Quiz #3 as you meet the flock:

Students MOBIL-ize the Migration: Gas Money for the Cranes
Students at Kennedy Montessori School in Louisville, Kentucky are in high gear. They have an idea to help fill the gas tanks of the ultralight planes. How? They wrote letters and folded paper cranes and mailed them to the leader of ExxonMobil. They chose ExxonMobil because this corporation has what it takes—gasoline—to get the crane-kids to Florida. We share photos of these terrific students and their work in the hopes that classrooms everywhere will quickly add their own letters and paper cranes. Can everyone working together convince EXXON to MOBIL-ize the migration? Find details here.
E-mail Summaries are posted to registered participants on FRIDAYS: Sep 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; Oct 6, 13, 20, 27; Nov. 3, 10, 17. . .or until this year's newest Eastern whooper chicks reach their winter home in Florida!
