The International Crane Foundation (ICF) is dedicated to the study and conservation of the 15 species of cranes worldwide. ICF uses a combination of research, education, habitat protection, captive breeding, and reintroduction to ensure the long-term protection of these iconic birds. In partnership with Conservation International, the Rwandan Environmental Management Authority and the Rwanda Development Board, ICF will field-test for the Payments for Ecosystem Services scheme with communities neighboring Rugezi Marsh as well as developing baseline data for Nyabarongo and Akanyaru wetlands. Opportunities to generate revenue from ecotourism and nature-based activities will also be promoted. Ultimately, this project will benefit the resident population of Grey Crowned Cranes Balaerica Regulorum.
