Canadian Geese


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Since the 1970s, the population of western Canada geese in the Lower Columbia has been increasing. The eruption of Mount St. Helens created a new island, Fisher Island, that is a goose haven, but the Port of Portland is considering a dredging project that would destroy that habitat.

First Broadcast: 1991
Producer: Steve Lobel
