Managing Canada Geese in Urban Environments




Geese are extremely adaptable and may use the food and protection provided by humans in urban landscapes for nesting, raising young, molting, feeding, and resting. This has led to increasing numbers of conflicts between Canada geese and people. Solving goose conflicts may involve changing human attitudes or behaviours as well as modifying goose behaviours or directly reducing flock size. This manual is intended to help wildlife professionals, landowners and land managers to select appropriate management strategies for alleviating problems cause by Canada geese.
