Cranes bring people together - without borders - worldwide

They are considered ambassadors for nature conservation. And indeed, the cranes also show us the many important tasks that we humans need to work on at full speed:
- Climate change - wetlands are drying out and cranes therefore have poor reproductive success, ...
- Species decline - at least 10 of the 15 crane species worldwide are declining rapidly or are already threatened.
- Agribusiness - insects, the food of young cranes, are becoming less and less abundant. Rearing success is declining.
These and other issues were discussed by 78 participants from 20 nations (Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, U.S.A., Vietnam) at the 10th European Crane Conference in Tartu, Estonia, from 21 to 27 August. In this context, some transnational projects were agreed upon.
