Small size projects for Muraviovka Park - 2009
Attached is a list of crane projects for Muraviovka Park for 2009. If any of you have any conservation dollars, any of these projects would be great to support. Muravivoka Park (in the Russian Far East) is a public owned nature area with land set aside as refuge for cranes and other species. Red-crowned, white-naped, and hooded cranes utilize this land-some breed there and others just pass through. The red-crowned breeding continues to suffer with the ongoing drought in the region. It is a safe region for many species. Please contact either myself or Sergei with any questions about the Park or their needs. In addition, the critically endangered Oriental White Stork also breeds here. Recently, work has started on the rare Swan Goose to try and increase their numbers and save this species.
