Report a Whooping Crane Sighting or Violation
If you are lucky enough to see a whooping crane, please do not approach it, even in a vehicle, to avoid habituating the birds to human activity. If you share the sighting on social media, bird listservs, or other public sites, please do not share location information more specific than county or parish level.
In addition, please report your sighting to help us track the cranes. We appreciate as much information as you are willing or able to provide.
Note that whooping cranes in the Louisiana population have been known to travel into surrounding states.
