UK invasive species


Canada goose

  • Large flocks of Canada geese create an enormous quantity of droppings, which foul parks and golf courses. The droppings can also pollute water bodies, causing health risks to humans.
  • In areas where Canada geese are found in vast aggregations they can cause damage to riverbanks and waterside vegetation.
  • Large populations of Canada geese around airfields can increase the risk of collisions.
