Canada Goose

Canada Goose Branta Canadensis

 

It may be hard to believe, but at one point the Canada goose was considered a threatened species. Today population management programs keep their numbers in check - as they can be very detrimental to crops. There are eleven confirmed different "races" of Canada goose, ranging in size and colouration pattern. Canada geese (not "Canadian" geese) have an average life span of twenty four years and over those twenty four years, a single goose creates roughly 1,088 kilograms of excrement!
