Mother Goose

Goslings in her arms Already 8 years, few goslings survive to fledging with an arctic fox den in town. This year we have decided to raise goslings in captivity to monitor the development of their digestive tract and immune system. Together with Kathryn, I have collected 16 newly hatched goslings from 9 nests and brought them to the village. Taking care of these small creatures is intensive work and Sóley Ósk Hyman is helping me. She is staying in the village together with her parents while her father is making a reportage about the effect of pollution on arctic wildlife. He has discovered a new story in the work of his daughter, playing mother goose.
