start of gosling experiment

1 July 2014 16:00

Yesterday, I have collected 16 goslings from 8 nests for our new gosling experiment. We will have two groups. One will feed in the polluted old mine area and the other on clean tundra. Isabella Scheiber and Nico van den Brink have designed the experiment. Nico will look at the uptake of contaminants and Isabelle will study the effect of stress on hormone levels, specifically corticosteron. But in this video, the goose raisers feature. Margje de Jong and Anna Braun have both a group to care for. The goslings are already a bit imprinted after one day.
