In 1941, only 16 Whooping Cranes remained in the world. Through massive conservation efforts, their numbers have risen to about 600 today. But their survival remains precarious.
This month, I flew to Corpus Christi Texas to photograph the whoopers in the salt-water marshes in and around the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, where about 350 of them spend their winters feasting on crabs and berries.
