Despite its recognition as the National Bird of Uganda, the Gray Crowned-Crane has suffered major population declines in recent decades across its range in Sub-Saharan Africa and is classified as Endangered. Destruction of wetlands and grasslands, extensive pesticide use, drought, and live trapping of chicks for the animal trade, have all contributed to its decline. Human population growth continues to create stresses, exacerbated by climate change. Cranes form tight pair bonds, so I chose to portray a tender moment, typical of these charming birds. Protection of wetlands and other vital ecosystems would help maintain the incredible diversity for which Africa is famous.
