Barnacle Goose

Iconic Arctic goose whose chicks must face the ultimate "leap of faith"!

Our Expert Says
 "Barnacle geese can live for over 30 years in the wild, and they pair up for life. The Svalbard population was almost wiped out by hunting before being protected and has now recovered from only 250 birds in 1943 to over 33,000 today."

The barnacle goose is a medium-sized Arctic breeding species that is mainly found in eastern Greenland, Svalbard, the Baltic Sea, and the Barents Sea in summer. They are called barnacle geese not because of their resemblance to barnacles, but because legend had it that the geese used to spawn out of goose barnacles that grow on rocks around the coasts!
