 Dancing with Cranes: Their Story is My Story 

A Conversation with Dr. George Archibald, the First Indianapolis Prize Winner 

Feb. 18 6pm Eastern

Join us for a special live conversation with the very first Indianapolis Prize Winner Dr. George Archibald. 

When ornithologist and co-founder of the International Crane Foundation Dr. George Archibald first met a female whooping crane named Tex, who had imprinted on humans, his goal was simple: form a bond strong enough that she would lay an egg. His unique approach, which included dancing alongside her, created a remarkable relationship, produced a successful chick and helped make a future for the species a reality.

His journey is found within “Saving Endangered Species,” a new book featuring chapters from each Indianapolis Prize Winner and the Jane Alexander Global Wildlife Ambassador Award recipients. Each chapter offers the author’s unique perspective on the state of wildlife conservation and the future of the natural world. Saving Endangered Species also covers important issues like human-wildlife conflict, habitat loss and the illegal wildlife trade. This book gives readers a first-person look into the commitment and passion it takes to be a champion for our planet.

Hosted by Indianapolis Zoo Board of Trustees member Christa Adkins, George will share his story during the virtual event and answer participants' questions. 

“Saving Endangered Species” is available in hardcover and electronic formats through Johns Hopkins website or Amazon. Proceeds directly support the Indianapolis Prize.
