Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

The Florida Sandhill Crane is far less common, with some 5,000 individuals remaining. They are most threatened by habitat destruction and probably depend on human management in the long run. In Florida, it is protected, and if killed, carries a very high monetary penalty. This subspecies is under protection of state and federal law at this time. Since the loss of habitat is a somewhat controllable cause of a declining population, habitat preservation is a valuable management measure. The current outlook for the Florida sandhill crane, if it can be maintained on the protected habitats, is good. this Sandhill Crane was taking peanuts from my friend hand, they were right next to us, it is a amazing how tall and trusting they are. Captured in Gibsonton, Florida
