CIM goes into hibernation
After a wonderful autumn with thousands and thousands of cranes the Crane Information Mobile (CIM) moved into hibernation. Volunteers and ranger from the Crane Conservation Germany provided visitors at the CIM information about cranes and the Darß-Zingst Bodden chain.
Cranes are particular important for this area because the nearby island Kirr is one of the largest roosting sites for Common Cranes in this area. At its peak, over 23,000 Cranes were counted on the island providing stunning natural spectacle when the large birds were flying to the Kirr.
Even now over 10,000 cranes can be seen in the evening from the dike at Zingst approaching the island Kirr, but now without support and explanations of our ranger. However, if you want to learn more about the cranes, we would like to welcome you at the NABU-Crane Centre in Groß Mohrdorf (daily opened between 09:30 am and 05:30 pm) and the KRANORAMA at the Lake Günz (daily opened between 09:00 am and 06:00 pm) to observe cranes during the day.
