The Crane Festival event was full of interesting activities and entertainments including artistic performances of eco-club members and a contest “Questions & Answers” (Q&A) on endangered and threatened bird species. There were also photos and drawings on birds displaced.  “The school children, who participated in the “Q&A”, provided their precise answers to the questions without any doubts. This is a result of the annual Crane Day”, the organizers said.  The crane mob-dances performed by eco-club members were one of interesting entertainments during the Crane Day. The Crane Festival was attended by eco-club members who joined a campaign “Chicks of My Town” initiated by WWF-Mongolia to protect eggs of migratory birds.  The eco-club members made presentations on importance and value of protection of eggs and chicks from disturbances.  The event was encouraging active participation of children and was highly appreciated by local residents and ornithologists.  This year’s Crane Festival was attended by more than 300 individuals including eco-club members, school children, and local people in the soums.
