Cape Barren goose

Posted by
: Helen : (ATM Helen is photographing in, Australia) on 15 October 2015 in Animal & Insect.

This is a photograph of a Cape Barren goose (Cereopsis novaehollandiae).

This large goose feeds on tussock grass or low heathy scrub and is found in Western Australia, south-eastern Victoria and on rocky offshore islands.

The good news is that despite being endangered in the 1950's, due to conservation measures, there has been improvement in their populations in many areas.
