confronting cranes and the survival of many species, including our own. Together, we will continue to make
meaningful differences in our world. Photo by John Ford

You can make a difference

Today, 11 of the 15 crane species are threatened with extinction. Your International Crane Foundation (ICF) membership supports effective conservation programs in over 20 countries where cranes need help. The same challenges facing people – environmental degradation and growing demands on diminishing supplies of fresh water – impact the survival of cranes. ICF is dedicated to identifying and implementing constructive solutions that address the urgent needs of people while protecting cranes and the natural places on which they depend.
