Whooping Crane  --  Endangered  --  Total population in the wild numbers 382 individuals.  However, the only self-sustaining population breeding in Northwest Territories & Alberta in Canada & wintering in the southern US, numbers 266 individuals, fewer than 250 of which are mature.  Hence a precautionary estimate of 50-249 mature individuals is retained, which equates to 75-374 individuals in total.
