The International Crane Foundation

 The International Crane Foundation (ICF) says cranes "are ambassadors for peace among diverse peoples, who unite in efforts to save the elegant birds, and for the preservation of their fragile wetland and grassland homes and migratory staging grounds." Covering five continents, fifteen species of cranes range freely and migrate across deserts, mountains, frozen tundra, and the borders of hundreds of nations.

 Because of habitat loss, many crane species that once thrived in much broader ranges are now restricted to protected land in parks, sanctuaries, even demilitarized zones between hostile nations.The beauty and presence of these marvelous creatures enriches our world.

Asian Art & the Duck

 The Duck is usually thought to be a symbol of resourcefulness. The duck has the ability to walk, swim, fly and 'duck' under the water to feed or hide from predators. In both Chinese and Japanese culture, the duck is a symbol of happiness and fidelity. When the duck and drake are together, it is a sign of happiness and beauty.
