Don’t Let Sandhill Cranes Die off Due to Destruction of Migration Routes

Target: Jim Pillen, Governor of Nebraska

Goal: Protect and preserve the crucial migration route of Nebraska’s sandhill cranes.

The annual migration of sandhill cranes through Nebraska is a spectacle of nature, drawing thousands of these majestic birds as they journey to their Arctic breeding grounds. This migration route is not only a marvel, but also of paramount importance for the survival of this species.

Extending across Nebraska, this migration corridor has witnessed increasing threats in recent years. Expanding human activities, land development, and habitat fragmentation jeopardize the safety and well-being of these cranes during their journey. Without adequate protection, this ancient migratory route may become unsustainable, leading to potential population declines and ecological imbalances.

It is crucial to recognize that the sandhill cranes’ migration not only contributes to the biodiversity of Nebraska, but also brings substantial economic benefits through ecotourism. Failing to safeguard this route not only risks the crane population, but also impacts the livelihoods of local communities.

Sign the petition below to demand immediate action to protect and preserve Nebraska’s sandhill crane migration route, ensuring the continued existence of this remarkable natural phenomenon and its ecological and economic benefits.


Dear Governor Pillen,

The annual migration of sandhill cranes through our great state is a testament to the awe-inspiring wonders of nature. This migration corridor, etched in the annals of time, is not just a natural spectacle but a vital lifeline for the sandhill crane species.

However, we are witnessing encroaching threats to this invaluable migration route. Human activities, unchecked development, and the fragmentation of their habitat endanger this ancient journey. We cannot afford to remain passive as these magnificent birds face potential decline and disruption.

We must recognize the interconnectedness of this migration with our own well-being. The presence of sandhill cranes enriches our biodiversity and bolsters local economies through ecotourism. To ignore this reality would be a disservice to both our natural heritage and our communities.

Therefore, we earnestly implore you to take swift and decisive action to protect and preserve Nebraska’s sandhill crane migration route. The future of these magnificent birds and the vitality of our region depend on it.
