Celebrating 50 From the Field Webinars

We’ve hit an important milestone with our From the Field webinar series. 50 webinars!

Last year in March, the global COVID-19 pandemic required people worldwide to work from home, which included International Crane Foundation staff in Africa, Asia and North America. This created a great opportunity for us to share information with a global audience eager to learn more about cranes and conservation through our From the Field webinar series.

Our series provides a platform for colleagues to share research, outreach, fieldwork findings and other crane and conservation information via Zoom webinars. This content is new or repurposed from prepared presentations shared at festivals, conferences and workshops. Presentations vary in length, from 25 to 45 minutes, with a moderator asking the presenter(s) questions received from the audience.

Through this series, we are deepening participants’ understanding of our worldwide programs and we have increased awareness about crane conservation across the globe. The series is created by a creative and dedicated team working on multiple continents and countries. We’ve curated a selection of webinars for you, shown below, or you may browse our full webinar library.
