January 23, THIS MONDAY, 7:00 PM: Cranes — Critical Ambassadors for Conservation.
Cranes are among the most loved and revered birds on earth. Tall, stately and heart-stoppingly charismatic, they are nonetheless also among the most endangered families of birds. Eleven of the globe’s 15 species are threatened or endangered, and our own North American examples reflect both the plentiful (Sandhill) and the few (Whooping).
DFO’s first evening program of 2023 features Rich Beilfuss, who will explore the role of cranes as ambassadors and flagships for conservation. The International Crane Foundation’s focus on conservation of North America’s endangered Whooping Crane population is featured in a 14-minute video, Cranes: Symbols of Survival, narrated by longtime NBC News anchor, Tom Brokaw.
