As of November 23, according to the monitoring data of Yunnan Dashanbao Black-necked Crane National Nature Reserve Administration, a record number of 1,623 black-necked cranes have come to winter this year.

Black-necked cranes are as rare as giant pandas, and are one of only 15 global species of crane that live in high altitudes throughout their lives. Most of the birds are distributed in China, where they are categorized as a first-class protected animal.

In recent years, the nature reserve has introduced multiple measures to expand the size of its wetlands, improve existing ecosystems and raise people’s awareness about protecting black-necked cranes. This year, the migration peak arrived about half a month earlier than in years past. The number of black-necked cranes increased by five or six hundred over the same period previous year.

The peak migration period of black-necked cranes will continue until early December and their numbers will stablise by the end of the month. Most of the black-necked cranes will winter here and leave next spring.
