Siberian Cranes at Poyang Lake, China. Zheng Zhongjie, ICF Contributing Photographer
Join ICF Co-founder Dr. George Archibald and President & CEO Dr. Rich Beilfuss in early December 2014 to experience two of the most important spots for cranes in East Asia. The first will be Poyang Lake in China where almost all the world’s Critically Endangered Siberian Cranes spend the winter. The second important visit will be the Korean DMZ where more than half of the mainland Red-crowned Cranes winter and more than two-thirds of the world’s White-naped Cranes rest during migration or remain through winter. These amazing wetlands support some of the biggest concentrations, and some of the rarest waterbirds in Asia! The journey will conclude with a stay in beautiful Hokkaido, Japan, where as many as 1,500 Red-crowned Cranes perform their graceful dances on the snowy landscape.
