Help is committed to easier web access for everyone interested in Brolgas, Sarus Cranes and crane conservation. Here's a start – how to read with larger fonts and move efficiently and we hope enjoyably, around the site. Internet problems for rural users influenced us to aim for Web Standards, and to limit images and pdfs. There's no specific version for mobile but the site works well in iPad or tablet such as Samsung Galaxy. More usability features will be added, we value your feedback on priorities.
