The Less Fashionable Goose

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

The goose - a big honking bird that you see in the sky or in fields across Galloway – surely they don’t get up to much? Or is this an example of an under-appreciated species that can reveal richer and more complex lives than you might initially have thought? Join this free event to find out more about the lives they lead and challenges geese face.

The Galloway Glens Scheme has been working in partnership with the National Trust for Scotland’s team at Threave Estate to better understand the geese of Galloway. Individual birds have been tagged and tracked, revealing timings and destinations for these amazing creatures. But are their challenges increasing? And what can we do to help them?

This event is being delivered in ‘hybrid’ format, with attendees either invited to dial in via zoom online or to attend in person at the Balmaclellan Smiddy on 11th January. Tickets are free.
