Goslings hatch.

INTERNATIONAL efforts to save the smallest goose in the world from extinction have been boosted by new arrivals at a North East wildfowl centre.

Three red breasted geese have hatched at Washington Wetland Centre.

The species has suffered a 56% population decline in the wild in the last 10 years because of illegal hunting and habitat disturbance.

Listed as endangered on the World Conservation Union Red List, the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust has long been involved in the Redbreasted Goose International Working Group.
