Save Endangered Whooping Cranes from XL Pipeline

  • by: Animal Advocates
  • target: Department of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell,- President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden

The entire global population of wild, migratory whooping cranes migrates through the Alberta tar sands region twice annually. The endangered birds land in toxic wastewater pits, mistaking them for freshwater ponds.

The open pit mines of the destructive tar sands in Alberta, (that currently courses through two existing pipelines that crisscross our country), is hampering international efforts to protect endangered and threatened species. It is harming threatened grizzly bears, lynx, woodland caribou, and at least 130 migratory bird species,- endangered whooping cranes are particularly vulnerable.

Habitat disruption and fragmentation are the driving forces of the population’s decline. The tar sands activities are violating treaties that protect endangered and threatened species - The proposed 1700-mile Keystone pipeline XL would destroy vulnerable habitats and harm many endangered creatures- do not grant approval of the pipeline to proceed through the length of the United States.
