Product Abstract

The Brant is a small goose well known in Alaska for the tens of thousands of individuals that molt in the Teshekpuk Lake area of the coastal plain during the late summer. In Arctic Alaska, this species typically nests within 8 km of the coast although in the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska (NPR-A) can nest up to 30 km inland (Reed et al. 1998, D. Ward, pers. comm.). Brant often nest in colonies near the upper edge of salt marshes along sloping seacoasts or on estuarine deltas, although in areas where salt marshes are less common, they will be more dispersed, nesting near small ponds and freshwater marshes (Reed et al. 1998). Brant subsist on a vegetarian diet and during breeding primarily focus on just a few species of sedges and grasses (Reed et al. 1998). Alaskan breeders spend their winters along the Pacific Coast of North America as far down as Baja California (Reed et al 1998). Current Pacific Brant population (which includes the sizeable Y-K delta breeders) is estimated at approximately 125,000 (Arctic Goose Joint Venture 2008).
