Cranes of the World Map for Crane Week

We're celebrating the cranes of the world as Crane Week continues!

Yesterday we answered a frequently asked question about cranes: Where do cranes live?

The answer: Cranes have a nearly cosmopolitan distribution. These tall, long-legged and long-necked birds are found on all continents -- except for Antarctica and South America.

Today we're sharing our Cranes of the World map that shows all of the world's cranes and where you can find them.

Asia has the most diversity of species, with eight different cranes making a home in the region. Africa has five different resident species, plus one species that spends part of the year. North America, Europe, and Australia all boast just two species each.

The Cranes of the World map is available as a free printable poster download. You may also purchase the map in larger formats or on gifts and novelties.
