The International Crane Foundation commits to a future where all crane species are secure; a future where people cooperate to protect and restore wild populations and their ecosystems. These efforts sustain the places where cranes live, to the benefit of countless other species.

The International Crane Foundation was established in1973 on the Sauey horse farm in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Horse stalls were converted to crane pens, enclosures were built, and an incubator was installed.

The ICF focuses on six conditions essential to securing the future of cranes in the wild:

• Safeguarding Crane Populations

• Securing Ecosystems, Watersheds, and Flyways

• Bringing People Together

• Improving Local Livelihoods

• Empowering Conservation Leadership

• Building Knowledge for Policy and Action
