Product Abstract

The Greater White-fronted Goose, with a nearly circumpolar distribution, has the most expansive range of any species in its genus. In Alaska, this species breeds in large numbers in both the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta and also on the Arctic Coastal Plain, but they will also nest in the interior. On the coastal plain breeding habitat ranges from lowland wet to upland dry tundra often near ponds or lakes (Ely and Dzubin 1994). The Greater White-fronted Goose diet is dominated by vegetative matter, primarily grass and sedge rhizomes, tubers, and berries (Ely and Dzubin 1994). Arctic Alaskan populations winter on the Gulf Coastal plain in Louisiana and Texas as well as northern Mexico (Ely and Dzubin 1994). The Alaskan Arctic Coastal Plain population is estimated at 200,000 and population growth has been rapid in the past decade but has recently leveled off (Larned et al. 2012).
