The POST published an article in the Metro sec today regarding the Refuge's ending its Whooping Crane propagation efforts. I don't think this falls into the category of "bad news" although I haven't read the full article yet. It's of interest to me especially as I worked in this program in the early 1970's when it was in its infancy. Likely, as a historical issue, it might interest others...
If the link doesn't work, I found it by searching for "Patuxent"
