Welcome to Ozcranes

Ozcranes is for everyone interested in Brolga and Sarus Crane research and conservation

The Australian Crane Network is an informal grouping of scientists, writers, community groups, landowners and bird observers, sharing information about the Brolga Grus rubicunda in Australia and New Guinea, and the Sarus Crane Grus antigone in Australia. The Network is linked to crane research and conservation worldwide. We hope Ozcranes will be especially useful for people managing crane habitat, from swamps and dams to crops and pasture.

Explore Ozcranes growing resources about Brolgas and Sarus Cranes, thanks to contributions from many generous writers and photographers. You can visit every page through the Site Map or just wander around: the logo at top left always returns to the Home page. Links to crane-related projects and new contributions are welcome.

Recent updates: ‘One size does not fit all’ by Dr KS Gopi Sundar, Director of Program SarusScape for the International Crane Foundation: how studies discovered Victoria's Brolgas choosing different types of wetlands for breeding and flocking. Plus a new page on Brolga conservation, and invasive Siam Weed found on Lake Tinaroo, site of many roosts for wintering Atherton Tablelands Sarus Cranes.
