The North American Crane Working Group is a member of the Ornithological Council (OC), a consortium of 10 scientific ornithological societies in the Western Hemisphere. The OC mission is to:

  • Ensure that the best ornithological science is incorporated into legislative, regulatory, and management decisions that affect birds;
  • Enhance the ability of ornithologists to pursue professional activities; and
  • Promote the influence of ornithology in public affairs.

The OC provides its members with comprehensive guidance and support for permits in the U.S. and Canada and for animal welfare. For more information, click here.
