What caused the whooping crane to become endangered?

"The only crane more critically endangered than the Red-crowned Crane is the North American Whooping Crane. The Red-crowned Crane is listed on CITES appendix 1, with a total world population estimated at 1500 in the wild with another 700 in zoos around the world. The National Zoo supports the conservation of the Red-crowned Crane by participating in the Species Survival Plan. The privilege of hunting the magnificent tancho was reserved for the Japanese nobility until 1867. The subsequent increase in hunting pressure drove the cranes from the southern Japanese islands by the end of the 19th century. Both the Hokkaido and mainland populations were devastated by World War II and the Korean War. By the severe winter of 1950 the Hokkaido birds were reduced to 25 half-starved birds huddled around a hot spring. Local farmers came to their rescue by supplying them with grain. Japan designated the tancho as its national bird in 1952." from
