Enriching the Lives of Our Cranes

Kim has been working at ICF since 2006, when she started as an intern in the Crane Conservation Department and then transitioned to an Aviculturist. She spends much of the summer in costume working with the Direct Autumn Release Program Whooping Crane chicks, and then quickly shifts gears in the fall to a wide variety of crane facility maintenance projects. She has also been helping develop an enrichment and training program for our captive flock and is the vice-coordinator of the Red-crowned Crane studbook. Kim received her B.S. in Biology and Wildlife, as well as a Captive Wildlife Minor, from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
