Join our Highland Grassland Field Officer Bradley Gibbons and Blue Crane Ph.D. Candidate and Western Cape Field Officer, Leiden Conservation Graduate Fellow Christie Craig for their webinar on Thursday, Feb. 18, at 11 a.m. Central Time. Click here to register.

An estimated 30 percent of the world’s Blue Cranes population is found in the Karoo region of South Africa, a semi-arid area that is largely in a natural state and thus undeveloped. Therefore, the Karoo has the largest population of Blue Cranes in a natural and scenic habitat.

Bradley will share highlights of his eight years of Blue Crane conservation in the Karoo, and Christie will share some preliminary research results of her research over the last two years in the region.
