"Thinking about the next 25 years for the Whooping Cranes"
Wetland where Whooping Cranes now feed in winter becoming too deep for wading birds, black mangroves moving north making wetlands inaccessible for cranes, thousands of wind farms along the migration route, melting permafrost, and the disappearance of perched wetlands where cranes rear their young in northern Canada are among the potential problems facing Whooping Cranes during the next 50 years. George Archibald will describe the threats and suggests things humans can do to help the Whooping Cranes continue to increase.
Dr. George Archibald, along with Ronald Sauey, established the International Crane Foundation (ICF) in 1973 as the world center for the study and preservation of cranes, then completed his Ph.D. at Cornell University in 1977. For 27 years, Dr. Archibald served as the President of ICF. Today, he directs programs for ICF worldwide, including work in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Cuba, China, India, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, South Korea, and Russia.
