Number and distribution of couples Egyptian Geese (Alopochen aegyptiaca), and the possibility of diminishing the population through intervention in the number of hatched eggs and/or fledged young on Sabi River Sun Resort and Pine Lake Resort
MetadataShow full item record
The Egyptian Goose is a goose that is spreading easily throughout the world and possibly causing multiple problems. At two resorts of the Tsogo Sun Company a population study was done to examine the number of couples of Egyptian Geese, their distribution and the possibility of diminishing the population through intervention in the number of hatched eggs and/or fledged young. The study was conducted from the last week of June to the last week of August. At both research sites multiple couples were found that defended a territory. No nests were discovered at either Pine Lake Resort or Sabi River Sun Resort. Only on the property of the Sabi River Sun Resort young were found. All young were raised in the same area.
