Sandhill Crane Migration
Janis Hurley, Wildlife Conservation Photographer
Did you know that more than 80% of the world’s Sandhill Cranes make their way on their annual migration north through Nebraska’s Platte River Valley each year?
Did you know that millions of other migratory birds visit the Platte River each spring?
Did you realize that this migration is one of wildlife’s greatest spectacles?
Join Conservation Photographer and Eastern Long Island Audubon member, Janis Hurley, as she recounts her March 2019 migration trip to Nebraska.
Janis Hurley, a Wildlife Conservation Photographer, loves telling stories through images of the natural world. “To witness the interactions of animal/bird families, to see the miraculous instinctual migrations, the familial bonds, and to behold their struggles for habitat and survival…” all these things drive Janis’s work as she uses her art to raise awareness about the lives of wild beings.
“I want people to see things from an animal’s point of view, and to feel something – joy, compassion, wonder, amusement, peace – to relate to the subject beyond just the image.” One of her goals through her photography is to influence people to be more mindful of the environment, to think of what we stand to lose by our carelessness and over-consumption.
Her work has been exhibited at Libraries and Galleries across the East End and Upstate New York. She was recently notified that she was the Grand Prize winner in the Wildlife category of the 26th annual Gurwin Photo Contest.
