Understanding North America’s Cranes

Anne began working with the International Crane Foundation (ICF) in 2000 as an intern with the Field Ecology Department. She accepted a full-time position as a research associate, and later began coordinating our long-term Sandhill Crane research. More recently she began working with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership, of which ICF is a founding member, to study the newly reintroduced Whooping Cranes in Wisconsin. Anne grew up in Madison, Wis., leaving to attend college in Eau Claire, Wis., where she received a B.A. in Psychology and B.S. in Biology. She received her M.S. in Biology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
