International Crane Foundation


Why Cranes?

Our work is about life on Earth. 

With 11 of 15 species facing extinction, cranes are among the most endangered families of birds on Earth. From bringing back the Whooping Crane from the brink of extinction to reversing the decline of endangered crames in Asia and Africa, our efforts ensure that cranes will always grace our planet.

But the work of the International Crane Foundation is about so much more than cranes. Our work is about life on Earth.

For 45 years, the International Crane Foundation has been a trusted leader in conservation around the world, but we still have so much more to do. To help us continue our important work, please consider making a donation today.
