PROJECT ACHIEVEMENTS

FLEDGING YOUNG CRANES ON BREEDING SITES

Improved fledging of young cranes on breeding sites. The combined force of the crane custodians (crane adoption groups), crane monitors, school environment clubs and project awareness teams has seen the improvement of fledging success from 1.2 in 2007 and before to 1.7 in 2010/ 11. It is hoped that the improved recruitment of the young into adulthood if maintained for while will halt and or reverse the plumetting population trend (table below).
