Help the Whoopers and Ultralights Reach Florida!

The migration is conducted by Operation Migration. They need and appreciate help!

Each of the approximately 1285 miles from Wisconsin to Florida costs about $182.00. You can contribute any amount you want, or you can sponsor a mile, half-mile ($91.00), or a quarter mile ($45.50). Here's how ANY amount of money helps Operation Migration get the cranes to Florida:

• $26.80 buys a bag of Crane Chow. (The migration uses about 10 bags, but more will be needed if many delays occur.
• $32.00 buys a week's worth treats and rewards (mealworms, grapes, cranberries, pumpkins, squash..
.)
• $786.00 buys eight new costumes/puppets made each year
• $150.00 buys a week's worth of propane to heat the travel trailers

• $72.00 buys fuel for a day of flying for four ultralights

Cost to reintroduce a new generation of Whooping cranes to the Eastern Migratory Population… Priceless!
