GooseWatch NYC is committed to the protection of Canada Geese in New York City and beyond through public education, political and legal action, on the ground efforts, and advocacy for more ethical, practical, and effective solutions to conflicts with geese. Our mission is to end the killing of geese, as well as other animals, whose presence serves the community and enriches our lives, and to call attention to their destruction.
GooseWatch NYC is an advocacy group opposed to the roundup and slaughter of New York City’s Canada geese. Various justifications have been used to justify killing geese for lethal removal from public and private locations throughout NYC and the surrounding region. Our coalition includes animal advocates, pilots, biologists, veterinarians, policy makers, community leaders, and members of the general public. Our tax dollars finance the killing of our community's geese, and the killing program is executed by city, state and federal agencies - we have the right to trasparancy, but very little is revealed about the operations. The mission of GooseWatch NYC is to call attention to these inhumane and ineffective killings.

Protection of people & wildlife are not mutually exclusive options, we can & must do both in order to secure either.
