Goose Sighting Locations
Sighting locations of geese banded in June 2016 and June 2017 are shown in the images below. Points simply represent sighting location and do not represent frequency of sightings or the number of collared geese present at each site. These maps were generated by sighting reports up to June 2018 – we continue to learn new things about the Nanaimo goose population!
