Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 10251552) - Siberian Crane - Awarded $20,000 on January 06, 2011

The International Crane Foundation (ICF) works worldwide to conserve cranes and the wetland and grassland ecosystems on which they depend. ICF is dedicated to providing experience, knowledge, and inspiration to involve people in resolving threats to these ecosystems. ICF differs from most nature centers and conservation facilities in that its activities single out a very specific subject – cranes – rather than treating the natural history and general ecology of a region. But the focus on cranes is not limiting; instead it provides ICF an opportunity to address a series of issues not tied to a particular E 11376 Shady Lane Road Baraboo Wisconsin USA 53913 Landline: 608-356-9462 ext 156 Mobile: 608-963-4202 608-356-9465 george@savingcranes.org place: endangered species management, wetland ecology, habitat restoration, and the critical need for international cooperation. Our programs stress the interdependence between wildlife and their habitats and the relationships that exist between wildlife, habitat, and people. We believe that cranes can serve as a symbol inspiring people from many nations to trust each other and to work together to conserve these magnificent birds. This mission is met through training, field research, public education, species and habitat conservation, captive breeding, and reintroduction. The idea for ICF was developed in December of 1971. ICF was founded in March of 1973. ICF works in over 40 countries in Africa, Asia, and North America. ICF helps the world’s 15 species of cranes, birds that require wetland, grassland and agricultural landscapes, by focusing on ecosystems used by cranes. Conservation of the Siberian Crane and its wetlands benefits at least 30 threatened waterbird species.
