Ozcranes.net is committed to easier web access for everyone interested in Brolgas, Sarus Cranes and crane conservation. All Australian crane habitat is rural, from remote areas to the outskirts of regional towns. To help rural users with limited access, we try to limit large images and links to pdfs state the size of the file. In the Site Map pages with more images are marked (G) for gallery, and may load more slowly on some networks. Ozcranes is a magazine site so there's no specific version for mobile, but it's suitable for iPad or tablet held landscape. For overseas users the Sidebar presents maps with Australian states and locations of key projects covered on the site.
