The Sandhill Cranes of the Platte River

Platte River Plains and Sky
The sight of hundreds of thousands of Sandhill cranes on the Platte is a testament to one of North America’s most comprehensive conservation movements. Despite the progress, North America continues to lose ground every day as wetland and native grassland habitats are destroyed. This expedition underscores the importance of maintaining and enhancing protections provided under laws such as the Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, and the Farm Bill conservation title.
