On the occasion of Migratory Bird Day, the Crane Festival is being celebrated for the seventh year since 2013 in Binder soum of Khentii province in order to raise awareness on the white-naped crane, an endangered crane species. WWF-Mongolia collaborates with wide range of other organizations including the Wildlife Conservation and Science Society, Administration of the Onon-Balj National Park, Administration of the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area, and local  government office.     
This year many interesting activities were held during the event, including the exhibition of children’s drawings, performance by the children’s eco clubs, traditional games and Q & A competition. The organizers were happy that many children could give correct answers to all of the questions about cranes. Also, children were taught how to make origami of the crane, color the drawings and do drawing. More than 500 participants attended the event from Dadal, Batshireet, Bayan-Uul and Binder soums, including the children from eco-clubs, students from Khurkh village, tourists, as well as local residents.
