Lesser White-fronted Goose migratory routes in Eurasiah

Year: 2011 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The globally threatened Lesser White-fronted Goose is a Palearctic migrant, breeding discontinuously in forest- or shrub tundra and mountainous shrubby wetlands from Fennoscandia to easternmost Russia. The species has declined rapidly since the 1950s leading to a fragmentation of its breeding range. Many key stop-over and wintering sites are still unknown. Today, three distinct wild sub-populations remain, of which the two Western Palearctic subpopulations (Fennoscandian and Western main) continue to decline. The Eastern main sub-population is currently thought to be stable. In addition, a small population which migrates to the Netherlands has been supplemented/re-introduced in Sweden using a human-modified flyway.
