Green Features of Spirit of Africa
In June 2009 ICF opened Spirit of Africa, four naturalistic exhibits featuring the crane species of Africa. In harmony with ICF’s commitment to conservation, many sustainable features were incorporated into these exhibits, showcasing green technology, as well as providing a healthier, more sustainable environment for the African cranes. This video was made possible by a grant from the Antonia Foundation.
