Join Jane for the JGI's Annual Sandhill Crane Migration Trip

In her 2009 book Hope for Animals and Their World, Dr. Jane Goodall looks at species that have been brought back from the brink of extinction, including Nebraska’s famous sandhill cranes.

Amazing Crane Migration

Each year along the shores of the Platte River, near Kearney, Nebraska, a phenomenal natural event takes place—the spring migration of the whooping and sandhill cranes. Though the great migrations of the buffalo and passenger pigeon have become obsolete, there still exists, unknown to many, an opportunity to witness an equally spectacular occurrence in the crane migration.
