Description

Proud parents to be displaying their courting ritual.

This now rare species has long influenced the cultures of eastern Asia. Renowned for its grace and beauty, it is also a symbol of longevity because of its long lifespan.

Like most cranes, the white-nape's survival is threatened by loss of habitat. Only around 6,500 remain in the wild.
