Vancouver seeks public’s help to locate Canada geese nesting areas so that eggs can be addled

Birds becoming more of a nuisance as numbers grow

April 13, 2022  By Turf & Rec

The City of Vancouver is reaching out to the public to help it curb the Canada goose population. The geese have been congregating in several grassy areas, including Stanley Park, English Bay, Sunset Beach and VanDusen Botanical Garden, and are making a nuisance of themselves be defecating everywhere, eating young grass and digging holes around irrigation sprinkler heads in an attempt to drink the water. The city is asking the public to report nests they have found so that eggs can be addled.
