Anyone working on the project who may come in contact with the cranes must wear a costume so that the cranes NEVER see a normal looking human.

 

Additionally, the protocol incorporates a strict NO TALKING rule to ensure that the cranes do not become accustomed to human voices.

 

The goal is to keep the whooping cranes as wild as possible.
