Description

Cape Barren Geese are large and pale gray in colour. They have a very characteristic a small stubby beak, almost fully covered by a greenish-yellow skin fold known as a cere. They are mainly found in the open grasslands of the south coast of WA and south eastern Victoria, however they are listed as a vulnerable conservation status. They are monogamous, and breeding pair will form a life-long bond. Nests are built by the males, incubated by the females but the young are brooded by both parents equally.

Price is per week of loan.
