Ecological Overview

The Platte River is a complex ecosystem that has influenced its environment for millions of years.

The Crane Trust works to understand the complexities of the Platte River ecosystem and is making progress in preserving the ecological balance of that system. Below are a few examples of the Crane Trust scientists using technology and partnerships to better understand the systems and communicate their findings through photography, time-lapse videos and other means in order to share information to reach a much broader audience outside of the scientific community.
