Red-crowned Crane (Grus japonensis) - This endangered species reached the verge of extinction in the early 1900s primarily as a result of the loss of wetlands to agriculture. Since then conservation efforts have led to a population increase. More than 1000 birds now live in eastern Hokkaido, Japan, year round. They pair for life and perform elaborate courtship dances. © Elizabeth Tasker / Wildlife Images
