Adopt a goose

Your adoption makes a difference

Curious, cute and friendly, the goose’s story is one of staggering migrations, extreme isolation and wonderful characteristics. Yet they are under threat.

WWT’s love affair with the goose started with the nene, or Hawaiian goose. In 1952 there were just 30 surviving in the world when WWT’s founder, Sir Peter Scott took action to save them. Now, they’re still considered the world’s rarest goose, but there are more than 2,000 in the wild and they’ve been downgraded from Endangered to Threatened on the IUCN Red List. They are living proof that WWT’s work can bring a species back from the brink. But they and many other goose species still need our help.

Adopting a goose means we can provide the perfect feeding conditions and a safe habitat for our wintering birds. It also means we can continue to perfect research and conservation techniques to ensure the survival of healthy wetland habitats.
