Moving 250 Western Springs geese to new homes

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 18 February 2020

A new year and a new home for 250 geese who were resident at Western Springs in Auckland.

The population had grown out of control causing problems for the birds and the public so the call went out for a new home for them. Two land owners north of Auckland came to the rescue.

Auckland Council's Head of Operational Management and Maintenance, Anges McCormack explains to Jesse how the big move went.
