White-naped Crane Photo Contest Finalist
"White-naped Crane"
"White-naped Crane"
Proud parents to be displaying their courting ritual.

This now rare species has long influenced the cultures of eastern Asia. Renowned for its grace and beauty, it is also a symbol of longevity because of its long lifespan.

Like most cranes, the white-nape's survival is threatened by loss of habitat. Only around 6,500 remain in the wild.
