Sandhill Crane

Alfred Huang North American Crane Exhibit

The Alfred Huang North American Crane Exhibit highlights conservation efforts being made to bring the whooping crane back from the brink of extinction, and also tells the story about the sandhill crane, another important North American species. Basking in their adjacent exhibit are American alligators. These ravishing reptiles are sure to give you a big toothy grin as you pass by.
