Tue 1 - Wed 30 Sep Adopt a goose


Curious, cute and friendly, the nene - or Hawaiian goose - is the world's rarest goose.

In 1952 just 30 nenes remained in the wild when Sir Peter Scott, founder of WWT, took action to save the species.

Now WWT works to monitor threatened geese populations around the world and, where necessary, take action to protect them. Theirs is a story of staggering migrations, extreme isolation, and characteristics as weird and wonderful as the evolutionary niches which they’ve evolved to fill.

Adopt a goose today and find out about the lives of these iconic birds and the work that we’re doing to protect them.
