August 18, 2014: Evidence That Mistakes Can Be Corrected
Credit & Copyright: Maurice Bolduc from Michigan Evidence That Mistakes Can Be Corrected:"In the mid to late 1800’s whole sale harvesting of Swans were for it’s feathers to decorate hats. By 1900, Trumpeter Swans were extirpated from the north central and north eastern US. In the 1990’s there was an establishment of 44 trumpeter swans from Alaska in the Seney wildlife refuge in Germfask, MI. Today it can safely boast of having over 300 mating pairs within the refuge, with the birds now expanding beyond the refuge’s boundaries."
