George Happ is a biologist who have beeen priviledged to work with many research colleagues and students.

Since 1995, George and Christy Yuncker Happ have lived on 40 acres of permafrost taiga near Fairbanks, Alaska. Every summer for the first 21 years, we shared our cranberry bog with Millie and Roy, a nesting pair of sandhill cranes. Millie and Roy did not return in 2017 and other cranes vied for the territory throughout the summer.

Christy's photographs have been featured in the Sandhill Crane Display Dictionary, the Alaska Airlines Magazine, Prairie Fire Newspaper, the International Crane Foundation Bugle, and the Michelin Guide to Alaska Travel.

George offers lectures on sandhill crane behavior. He is an author on over 100 scientific papers and book chapters, several popular articles, and many blogposts. Recent publications include:
