goose catch with students
|Students of the course AB201 terrestrial ecology from UNIS, the university centre on Svalbard,
are assisting today with catching geese.
We start with a lecture on gooseology.
|During the catch all students are holding a gosling and guide it through the proces of ringing, measuring, blood sampling and weighing.|
|Part of the geese are placed in a bag with insecticides to remove the ectoparasites from the plumage.|
|Willemijn has developed a method to dry the weighing boxes and starts a dance with some of the students.|
