During migration, the entire population stages in the marshes and agricultural lands of southern Quebec, and a small part of the population has begun to migrate through eastern Ontario and northern New Brunswick.

Abstract. The Mid-Continent Population of the lesser snow goose, which breeds in the eastern and central Canadian Arctic and sub-Arctic, and winters in the southern United States and northern Mexico has increased 5–7 % annually from the late s to the mids, largely because of increased survival in response to an agricultural food subsidy.

Most of these birds are lesser snow geese from Wrangel Island, the western Canadian Arctic, and Alaska, along with Ross’s geese and white-fronted geese. There are now enough geese in the Central Valley to eat every grain of rice that remains after harvest.

The Arctic Goose Joint Venture (AGJV) is a conservation partnership established in between governments, organizations, and conservation groups to coordinate research and monitoring of Arctic, sub-Arctic and boreal nesting goose populations of North America, specifically the cackling goose, Canada goose, emperor goose, greater white-fronted goose.

These geese are of the Western Arctic population, which spend their winters in California, New Mexico or Mexico. As many as geese return yearly to nest in Big River and Egg River located within the sanctuary. This represents approximately 95% of the Western Arctic population and about 15% of the Canadian lesser snow geese population.

The Mid-Continent Population of the lesser snow goose, which breeds in the eastern and central Canadian Arctic and sub-Arctic, and winters in the southern United States and northern Mexico has increased 5–7% annually from the late s to the mids, largely because of increased survival in response to an agricultural food subsidy.

Like snow goose popula-tions in the eastern and central Canadian arctic, the Egg River colony has grown rapidly during the last decade. During the s and s, the popula-tion remained relatively stable betweenandgeese, but has increased to >,   (Estimates have today’s population of mid-continental lesser snow geese as high as 11 million.) Habitat on the Canadian Arctic Coastal Plain was suffering, because the overabundant geese were denuding the tundra and impacting many other migratory species.

Furthermore, the goose population was increasing by at least 5 percent annually. This plan provides guidelines for management of lesser snow geese from the Western Arctic Population (WAP) that occur in the Pacific Flyway.

The WAP breeds primarily on Banks Island in the western Canadian arctic, with smaller colonies along the Anderson and McKenzie River Deltas in Canada and on the arctic coastal plain in northern Alaska.

In the Atlantic Flyway, greater snow geese are by far the most abundant light goose population although some lesser snow geese and Ross's geese can also be found. Greater snow geese breed in the Eastern Canadian high arctic and winter predominantly in the eastern.

Preliminary calculations suggest many similarities between the structure of the Snow Geese population and that of the Pink-footed Goose.
