On Thursday, March 16, at 11 a.m. Central Time, join our colleague Dr. Hongxing Jiang, Deputy Director and Associate Researcher of the National Bird Banding Center of China, for the webinar, Working Together for a Bright Future for Siberian Cranes.

Hongxing will share what we have learned through tracking and research on the Critically Endangered Siberian Crane, why these studies are important, and how this research informs the next steps needed to conserve this fragile species and its habitats. 

Hongxing will be joined by International Crane Foundation staff: Claire Mirande, Asia Program Manager, Crawford Prentice, Vice President International – Asia, and Zhiwei Guo, China Program Officer. Zhiwei is currently working on his Master’s degree at Louisiana State University, studying wetland hydrology and management and will be applying these skills to critical wetlands in China.
