Royal crane’s description
I am the national bird of Uganda. I am often mistaken for the grey crowned crane, which looks a lot like me : We almost have the same crown !
3 to 4
Where do I live ?
I live in the East and the South of Africa, mainly in Kenya, Uganda, Zambia and South-Africa.
Which threats ?
I live in wetlands, which are more and more threatened habitats through droughts and human activities. Not only that : I am also hunted and my eggs are gathered. I am also victim of electrocution and collisions with power lines.
Kiwiwho’s word to save the royal crane
Wetlands have to be protected : they do not belong to men only ! Limiting the use of pesticides, that I absorb feeding on plants, would be a good idea too.
You too, help us to raise awareness about royal crane’s fate !
