Sandhills, The Cranes of Wisconsin
There are two main educational objectives to this web page. The first objective is to educate others about greater sandhill cranes. Education is the first step in conservation. If we can educate others then we can begin to work towards conserving the cranes and the places where they live. The way we learn more about cranes is the same way scientists learn. By learning how to radio track we learn more about being scientists and we learn more about the environment and can then teach others. The second objective is to educate others about the issues involved in conserving the cranes. Hunting is one issue in conserving cranes. Some people want to hunt cranes and others want to protect them. We need to learn more about cranes before lawmakers can make a decision. It is a very emotional issue and helps to show how important cranes are to some people. By bringing up the issue, people are focused on the importance of cranes and their habitats. Maybe once people realize the importance of cranes and the places where they live, people will work harder to protect them.
