The Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition, Inc. (CCCC) is dedicated to the conservation and protection of Sandhill Cranes in Colorado. CCCC was formed in May 2012 in response to a community discussion regarding the hunting of Greater Sandhill Cranes in Northwest Colorado. Birdwatchers, nature-lovers, and other interested citizens of Northwest Colorado were concerned that these migratory birds, designated as “endangered” by the State of Colorado in the 1970s and still listed by the state as a “species of concern,” would decline in numbers and disappear from the area.
Since its inception, the CCCC has concentrated on providing public education to ensure the protection of the Rocky Mountain Population of Greater Sandhill Cranes. In addition to the festival and educational programs for school children and community groups, CCCC monitors the status of cranes in the area and partners with other organizations engaged in habitat improvement projects for cranes and wildlife in Northwest Colorado. Since 2015 CCCC has spearheaded a new project called Crops for Cranes. CCCC is working with willing farmers and landowners in the Yampa Valley to help provide adequate food supplies for cranes just prior to migration.
