Abstract: In 1998, the Calgary Zoo opened a brand new exhibit, the Northern Forest, as part of our Canadian Wilds area. Animals on display in the Northern Forest include moose, caribou, river otter, beaver, barred owl, lynx, lots of insects, and of course, whooping cranes. The zoo has been part of a captive breeding program for whoopers for several years, and some of the captive birds have not yet selected mates, or cannot to fly properly, so they will probably never be able to breed. It was from these birds that our 2 whoopers were selected for display. With the whooping crane exhibit was a new outdoor amphitheatre that looked into the whooper enclosure, and beyond that, into the moose area.
