The International Crane Foundation
works worldwide to conserve cranes and the ecosystems, watersheds, and flyways on which they depend. We provide knowledge, leadership, and inspiration to engage people in resolving threats to cranes and their diverse landscapes.
Sandhills Cranes are a story of hope for birds in North America. Seventy-five years ago, Sandhill Cranes were declining across the country due to habitat loss and unregulated hunting. The actions of concerned citizens, wetland protection and international legislation has turned the tide. We created this website to help you explore where Sandhill Cranes live throughout the year and discover new places where you might see these magnificent birds.
