Ms Fryer, Sydney, NSW Great contrast between the mechanical cranes and the 'bird' crane. Also the photo of the cranes nesting on the power pole is very striking. As our Stage 3 are doing Japan next term, you have given me some great ideas for library projects to do with them. Thank you for sharing.
C Harrison, Haberfield NSW The message, the images and the background music makes this a very powerful presentation. Congratulations s3penrithps
Barbara Braxton, Cooma, NSW I love the way you have used mechancial cranes to highlight the impact of humans on the natural cranes. That is clever.
Mandie Gardiner i really enjoyed this presentation. I think your music was cleverly chosen to suit your topic.
ianmclean Beautiful images - some are very cleverly chosen. I like how mechanical cranes have moved into some of the wetlands. And the cranes nesting on a pole!

s3penrithps Some cranes of Japan are endangered.
s3penrithps Here is their home: the wetlands.
s3penrithps Japan has many species of waterbird. This one's babies have just hatched.
s3penrithps But their water is evaporating.
s3penrithps Is it global warming...
s3penrithps ... drying up the natural habitats?
s3penrithps People and machines are also filling in wetland areas. Please help the birds to survive.
s3penrithps Keep the cranes safe from hunters, who kill cranes for sport.
s3penrithps Their homes are being destroyed by chemicals - and natural disasters.
s3penrithps If these new cranes move in...
s3penrithps ... soon none of the world's waterbirds will have somewhere safe to raise their young.
s3penrithps The people of Japan should make special wetland sanctuaries where their cranes can feel safe. Please help to save them.
