Red-crowned crane / Manchurian crane

Grus japonensis

Mantsjoerijse kraanvogel / Japanse kraanvogel

This species is classified as Endangered because it has a very small population, and although the population in Japan is stable, the mainland Asian population continues to decline owing to loss and degradation of wetlands through conversion to agriculture and industrial development.
