A Hidden Threat to Grey Crowned Cranes in Uganda

International Crane Foundation team in southwest Uganda is working with local Crane Custodians and other community members to understand better the threat that powerlines pose to Grey Crowned Cranes in the region. The International Crane Foundation/Endangered Wildlife Trust African Crane Conservation Program aims to identify and lessen the damage from powerlines to cranes, other birds, and the surrounding ecosystems. To better understand the impacts of human-caused mortality on cranes in southcentral Uganda, they are implementing a project to understand the powerline infrastructure and how it affects biodiversity.
