A variety of surveys are conducted each year on breeding, staging, and wintering areas to assess status and trends of goose species and populations. Surveys are conducted by, and in collaboration with, a broad range of Canadian and U.S. Federal and provincial/state agencies and partners. Many of these surveys are funded or conducted through efforts by
- the Arctic Goose Joint Venture,
- the Division of Migratory Bird Management Alaska Region (Legacy Region 7),
- Environment Canada,
- and the Pacific Flyway Council (state and provincial agencies and partners in coordination with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Migratory Bird Program's Administrative Flyways).
