Over the past 50 years, the grey-crowned crane population in Rwanda has been reduced by 80%. RWCA trained rangers are working to reverse this trend and protect these endangered cranes.
As a volunteer ranger, Diane uses a bike to locate and protect more nests. She is now able to save money which also allowed her to expand her tailoring business. In his conservation efforts, Jean Claude is able to cover more ground by bicycle which has enabled him to discover new crane sites he never knew existed. He can also attend meetings and classes to increase community awareness and involvement.
