Here’s the hard truth: 11 of the world’s 15 magnificent crane species face extinction.
Threats to cranes from human activity – degradation and loss of habitat, wildlife trafficking, illegal shootings, power line collisions, poisoning, and lack of fresh water – are daunting. That’s the bad news. The good news is that humans can also be the solution. And with your help, we will be!
Right now, the International Crane Foundation is on the ground in remote places across the world implementing the science-based solutions needed to save cranes. We are working to:
• Improve the livelihoods of people who share their homes with cranes
• Protect the fresh water that sustains healthy wetlands for cranes
• Restore the lands that cranes – and many other species – depend on
• Ensure safe passage for cranes on their long migrations
We are so grateful to you for supporting this important work. Thank you.
The cranes aren’t out of the woods yet.
The International Crane Foundation is committed to a future where all 15 of the world’s crane species are secure. While the threats are severe and the timeline is urgent, we are confident in our plan for success. But we need your help.
Please consider making a donation to the International Crane Foundation today. Your donation ensures that we are able to do what it takes to protect the world’s cranes. We simply can’t do it without you.
