Population of endangered Grey Crowned Crane stands at 8,000 in Kenya

Working under the leadership of Werner Schroder, the Africa officer of NABU teams visited areas where there are habitats of Crowned Cranes.

Preliminary results of the recently completed countrywide Grey Crowned Crane survey show only eight to ten thousand of these beautiful endangered birds exist in the whole of Kenya.

The census was supported by DT Dobie providing two Volkswagen safari vans to carry the Nature and Biodiversity Union of Germany (NABU), National Museums of Kenya, Nature Kenya and Crane Conservation Volunteers on their mission.

Working under the leadership of Werner Schroder, the Africa officer of NABU teams visited areas where there are habitats of Crowned Cranes. The places surveyed included Lake Baringo and Lake Bogoria, Laikipia, Samburu and Amboseli.
