Cranes don't know bounderies
For this reason, international projects for conservation and basic research are of utmost importance. For example, Emmanuel Mgimwa, founder of Nature Tanzania, took part in a workshop of the ringing team from the NABU Crane Centre in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in June. Xavier Chauby, a ranger in the Arjuzanx nature reserve south of Bordeaux, supported the project as part of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Syndicat Mixte de Gestion des Milieux Naturels. Based on the ring readings, we know that numerous cranes from Germany pass through or even winter in the Nature Rserve of Arjuzanx.
If you look closely, the photo also shows the two colour-ringed young cranes just before their release.
Such actions would not be possible without the ongoing financial support of the Lufthansa Group since 1991 - thank you very much.
Kranichschutz Deutschland does not receive any institutional funding and is therefore dependent on aid and donations to carry out all of its crane conservation projects.
