"South of Winter: Scenes from the Aransas Wildlife Refuge" was an exhibition of 63 color photographs from the winter home of the endangered Whooping Crane. The photographs were taken by wildlife photographers Steven Wilson and Karen Hayden and included, in addition to birds, photographs of other wildlife, landscapes and people on the Gulf Coast of Texas. The exhibition revealed that the refuge was also home to numerous oil wells and suggested that humans and wildlife can cohabit harmoniously. The exhibit was sponsored by Conoco, Inc., a Du Pont Company. It was organized by the American Museum and was circulated in a national tour by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). The exhibit was on view In the Hall of Birds of the World at the American Museum of Natural History from July 27 through November 30, 1983.
