Quick Clicks to Help protect NY's Canada geese and Mute Swans

GooseWatch NYC

Jul 9, 2014 — GooseWatch has received confirmation from USDA Wildlife Services and National Park Service that 73 Canada geese were rounded up and slaughtered at Jamaica Bay Wildlife "Refuge" in NYC on June 25, 2014, as well as other parks in New York City. The killing of these geese was done in secret, we only became aware after the fact, and we are in the process of obtaining additional information. Please sign and share our petition urging an end to this senseless killing:

NY Sen. Avella and Assemblymember Cymbrowitz's legislation to put a stop to DEC's plan to wipe out the state's Mute swan population is almost law! It was passed by the Senate and Assembly, and now just needs the Governor's signature.

Please sign here to urge Governor Cuomo to protect not destroy NY's swans:
