Japanese crane’s description
I am one of the biggest bird in the world ! My beak is very long and sharp. I use it as a spear to harpoon my food into the swamps deep waters.
About 3 000
2.2 m to 2.4 m wingspan
Between 8 and 9 kg
Where does Japanese crane live ?
My territory extends not only over Japan, but also over Russia, Mongolia, China and both Koreas.
Which threats ?
The marshes where I live are transformed into agricultural lands. Dams, roads and pollution degrade my Aboutment. If all my swamps vanish, I will be unable to breed.
Kiwiwho’s word to save the Japanese crane
Scientists from all over the world studied my migrations, which allowed to establish protected areas. Where I live, hunting me is forbidden. Some wildlife parks took part into reintroduction programs too.
