The concern for the environmental deterioration of the winter territories of the cranes of Extremadura, and the conviction that the work of the artists is able to move the consciences of individuals and institutions in favor of the solution of this progressive evil, moved to the Foundation of Artists for Nature (ANF), with the support of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), to this project on the most beloved migratory birds in Europe.
By order of the ANF, sixty artists born in Spain, France, Belgium, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Greece, Holland, Finland, Norway, Russia, China, and the United States of America, all specialized in the portrait of life natural, they were prepared to capture in their drawings, watercolors and oils the life of the cranes, as well as the different landscapes that they travel in their annual migration from the islands of Öland and Rügen (Holland and Germany), through the European center, until the pastures and forests of Extremadura. At the same time, aspects of the architecture and the people of the rural areas through which they travel are reflected.
In addition to Nicholas Hammond, project coordinator, they write in the book George Archibald (director of the International Cranes Foundation) and Gunnar Brusewitz.
