Georgia Outdoors | Herons and Heroes

Herons and Heroes

Wading birds like herons and storks are native to wetlands worldwide. However, because of human destruction of wetlands and illegal hunting, wading birds have been under threat of extinction. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, wading birds have been on the decline and until recently, have been largely ignored by the global community.
