An exhibit unveiled Thursday at the Red River Zoo in Fargo will showcase a pair of endangered white-naped cranes, KVLY reports.
The zoo says the rare bird native to northern China and Mongolia are experiencing a rapid population decline in the wild primarily due to the loss of their wetland habitats.
Only 4,000 remain in the world, KVLY says, and about 90 live in captivity in the United States.
The two cranes have lived at the zoo for a few years but have not been open to the public.
The birds can grow to be about 4 feet tall and weigh about 12 pounds.
