Traditional Communities and the Welfare of Cranes

June 23 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Join us for our live webinar with Co-Founder George Archibald – Traditional Communities and the Welfare of Cranes in Iran, Bhutan, Tibet, Turkey and Russia – on Thursday, June 23, at 11 a.m. Central Time. Click here to register.

Sponsored by Delight Gartlein.

Cranes are admired, respected, and held as sacred in several traditional cultures. Learn about several cultures in Eastern Europe and Asia, whose ties to cranes have led to their conservation.

For example, in western China, the Tibetans consider the Black-necked Crane a sacred bird often linked to spiritual events. As a result, the cranes are not disturbed, have become tolerant of the proximity of local people, and major wintering sites have been protected.
