goose catch with students

Students of the course AB201 terrestrial ecology from UNIS, the university centre on Svalbard, are assisting today with catching geese.

We start with a lecture on gooseology.
During the catch all students are holding a gosling and guide it through the proces of ringing, measuring, blood sampling and weighing.
Part of the geese are placed in a bag with insecticides to remove the ectoparasites from the plumage.
Willemijn has developed a method to dry the weighing boxes and starts a dance with some of the students.
