On the occasion of Migratory Bird Day, the Crane Festival is being celebrated for the fifth year since 2014 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, mini Naadam (traditional games) and Q & A session. The organizers were happy that many children could give correct answers to all of the questions. Also, children were taught how to make origami of the crane, color the drawings and do drawing.  More than 600 participants attended the event from Dadal, Batshireet, Bayan-Uul and Binder soums, including the children from eco-clubs, students from Khurkh village, as well as local residents.
