From Chris Petherick:
As many of you may know, Operation Migration is the organization that
helps the Whooping Cranes find their proper migration route, among
other things. I believe that it was last year, but it's possible that
it was two years ago now, that they had their storage unit/hangar
vandalized and they lost their ultra-light plane. I am not involved
with the organization in any way, other than I have donated to them in
the past. So if any of my facts are incorrect, I sincerely apologize.
But that brings me to the point of why I am posting. Operation
Migration is in the running for a $25,000 grant that would allow them
to purchase a new ultra-light plane and get back to helping the
Whooping Cranes head south (and back north too I would suppose). But
they need our help. There are two $25,000 grants up for grabs and the
way that it works is that people have to go vote for their planned
grant usage. It's very easy to do, just follow this link.
You will see 4 categories for grants - $5,000, $10,000, $25,000 and
$100,000. Click on the $25,000 button and find them among the
"Planet" (green) category and vote for them each day until December
As I mentioned, I have absolutely no affiliation with this
organization, but I thought that they could use any help they could
get. I apologize in advance if anyone is offended or in any way
unhappy with me posting this.
