At forty years and counting, celebrated ornithologist George Archibald's global crusade to protect cranes still has the wind beneath its wings.
Congratulations to a very deserving George Archibald. He has been able to work with scientists and governments behind the "Iron Curtain" before the walls came down. His work in Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba and Vietnam have led to nature researves that have gone along way to saving cranes. He's a great scientist and diplomat and a warm wonderful human being.

I was disappointed that the article dwelled so much on an imprinted whooping crane and what happened 30 years ago. The writer missed the point - George Archibald is one of the world's outstanding conservation leaders. Archibald's charisma, dedication, and tireless efforts the past 40 years have inspired thousands of people and have led to the creation of numerous nature reserves all over the globe as well as increased protection for cranes and the wetlands they depend on. Congratulations George on a much deserved award!
What a lovely story!
You deserve this award, George. Look forward to meeting you in Korean DMZ.
Thank you Rene for covering up this wonderful story. Sangdon from Korea
Congratulations, Archibald ! I want to succeed your AnByun Projects in North Korea.
What a wonderful story of great commitment to the conservation of whooping cranes. I've only seen the ones in TX from a great distance once and then a few years ago 5 flew behind my home heading north but except for their calls were mostly blocked from view. Congratulations, Archibald for you much deserved recognition.
A lovely story, a lovely person. Such persistence and dedication. Conservation medicine is like the slow food movement of veterinary medicine.
