Victory For The Barnacle Geese In Täby Community, Sweden! Won’t Be Culled! :)))

Personal engagement in a small scale in environmental and animal rights issues could sometimes be very succesful.

I read in my local paper in Sweden, that my Community was going to cull a larger number of Barnacle Geese in my Community , because they defacated too much! :((((

I called personally the hunter and local politicians and protested and at the same time launched an online protest, together with Stacey, http://our-compass.org/.All this had a positive impact on the opinion and now the politicians have decided to cancel all future culling of the geese! :))))

All this can be read in today’s local paper.

  1. That is such a fantastic success story! I was just reading today in the Feb. Natural History magazine that barnacle geese on the west coast of Svalbard are declining due to polar bears running out of ringed seal prey. The bears are coming onto land more and eating the barnacle geese eggs. It’s so important that healthy populations of barnacle geese remain living. Great story, Ann.

  2. Thanks Jet for your liking! I have also heard about the story on Polar Bears eating Barnacle Geese eggs etc.
