Wood Stork’s Status Upgraded to Threatened Species

Wood Stork’s Status Upgraded to Threatened Species

The attention grabbing bird, Wood Stork is on its way to become threatened species from endangered. A little bleak picture of the bird in South Florida can be questionable whereas other states like Georgia and South Carolina have been doing well.

The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is heaven for bird lovers. The sanctuary's director, Jason Lauritsen, who has written a book, has mentioned this species as the most wading bird colony in Florida. He has attributed this status to the loss of natural habitat.

He mentioned in his book about 82 % of wet prairies that have been lost. Even a survey that was conducted to study birds, all the wading birds including Wood Stroke have declining immensely in Florida.

Positive results for Wood Stroke in various areas have shown that this species has rebounded marvelously.

According to Chuck Underwood, a spokesman for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service "Over the past several years, the bird has expanded further north and is breeding in larger and larger numbers in colonies all the way up into the very Southern, Southeastern portion of North Carolina".

He also said that removing the species from endangered list will not remove protections from birds. According to Alan DeSerio, an attorney with the Pacific Legal Foundation, this step will make various environmental groups very happy with the progress.
