We are pleased to announce that two critically endangered whooping crane chicks have hatched here at White Oak, marking the first time this species has successfully bred at White Oak. The chicks are being raised by their parents in a large naturalistic habitat that provides plenty of natural food and cover.

The whooping crane family will stay at White Oak until the fall when they will be released as a group into the wild at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin. White Oak is pleased to be a part of the effort to recover this critically endangered species. Learn more about our whooping crane family and the conservation work around them here
