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 generous contributions from many writers and photographers. A special thankyou to Peter Firminger of Wollombi NSW, who has generously hosted Ozcranes on his servers since the beginning back in 2005.
At Ozcranes you could visit every single page through the Site Map or simply wander around. Our new ‘travelling logo’ – top left – returns to the Home page from anywhere on the site. New contributions are very welcome, as are links to crane-related projects of many kinds: contact us with your request.
Recent updates include Brolga photos from a drone in irrigated rice, New South Wales Riverina; papers for download from renowned researcher Dr George Archibald; and Crane Art images from Yunnan Province, China.
