Goose bulletin

GOOSE BULLETIN is the official bulletin of the Goose Specialist Group of Wetlands International and IUCN-Species Survival Commission.


Goose BulletinFrom February 1991 till November 1996 regular bulletins were mailed to interested goose biologists from the National Environmental Research Institute in Kalø, Denmark. The 8th and last issue appeared in November 1996. During the meeting in Höllviken in October 2009, it was decided to restore this bulletin in a digital form.


GOOSE BULLETIN appears as required, but at least once a year in electronic form. The bulletin aims to improve communication and exchange information amongst goose researchers throughout the world. It publishes contributions covering goose research and monitoring projects, project proposals, status and progress reports, information about new literature concerning geese, as well as regular reports and information from the Goose Database.
