Whooping Cranes can be a rare sight to see in the coastal bend, as their species continues to recover from near extinction.

Joan Garland, public relations manager at the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce joined us on 3 News First Edition with a look at an upcoming festival celebrating the migration of whooping cranes to South Texas. The festival is February 22-25. For more information log onto www.whoopingcranefestival.org.
