Greenland White-fronted Geese finally protected in Wales

Behind the scenes, RSPB Cymru, WOS and others have continued to press Welsh Government to give the small Welsh wintering population of Greenland White-fronted Geese greater protection, and we were delighted when Minister Hannah Blythyn announced that the species would be removed from the list of birds that can be shot. As of 1st April 2020 that becomes law. It’s taken six years, good science, a partnership of people who care about the birds, and a lot of talking and listening. Next October, we’ll be looking out for the returning geese, hopefully with a few more juveniles, knowing that they are now better protected during their winter stay winter in Wales. Read the RSPB blog post for a full account of the campaign and its importance.
