International Crane Foundation


Kyle Tainter, Aviculturist

Kyle grew up on his family’s dairy farm in southwest Wisconsin, which furthered his interest in  animals and the outdoors. His passion for these two things led him to University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he majored in Biology with a minor in Wildlife Ecology.  Soon after college, Kyle served as an aviculture intern at the International Crane Foundation during the summer and fall of 2011 — and loved it.  A full time position became available as an aviculturist at ICF, so Kyle jumped at the opportunity and was lucky and honored to receive the position.  His favorite activities include bow hunting, fishing, camping and anything else that will allow him to be in the great outdoors!
