Zoom into Nature: Sandhill Cranes
October 11, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us virtually for the presentation “Sandhill Cranes: Who, What, Where and Why?” with Anne Lacy, Senior Manager of the International Crane Foundation’s North America Program. This program will look at the ecology of our beloved Sandhill Cranes. Using data from the International Crane Foundation’s long-term study area in Wisconsin, Anne will explore a few of the traits that make cranes famous, including longevity – how long can they live? – fidelity – they get divorced?? – and other fascinating stories from watching a marked population for over 30 years. She also will give insight into how Sandhill Crane ecology informs us about other, more endangered, crane species

About Anne Lacy
Anne grew up in Madison, leaving to attend college in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She received a B.A. in Psychology (1991) and returned to get a B.S. in Biology (1994). After working various jobs while taking graduate level Geographic Information Systems courses at the University of South Carolina, Anne was accepted to the graduate program in Biology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. After finishing coursework in Duluth in 2000, Anne accepted an internship at the International Crane Foundation (ICF), while also finishing her thesis.
After completion of her M.S., Anne accepted a full-time position at ICF as a research associate in the Field Ecology Department (now the North America Program), working on an ongoing long-term study of Sandhill Cranes. She added the Whooping Crane work in 2009, joining the Whooping Crane Reintroduction Project to study the ecology of the newly reintroduced population in Wisconsin.
