Canada geese in New Zealand
This paper presents 80 summary statements on Canada Geese. The overview is based on an extensive evaluation of evidence, enumerated and interpreted for Branta canadensis maxima populations in New Zealand conditions. Management prospects for the control of geese are examined under a progression of section headings, and some implications are drawn together in the conclusions. Recommendations are advocated in the context of the 1953 Wildlife Act, but some current anomalies are recognised. Two figures and a selected bibliography are included.
