Colonial Goose Monitoring in Greater Prudhoe Bay

Two species of colonially nesting geese breed in the oil fields operated by BP on the North Slope: Black Brant (Branta bernicla nigricans) and Lesser Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens caerulescens). Since the mid-1980s, various monitoring programs have focused on both species. Long term observations for number of nests from Sagavanirktok River Delta, Niakuk Island, Surfcote, and Milne Point colonies.

Visual census of Brant colonies along the road census, with fate checks at the Surfcote colony, and comparison to data from earlier research in the 1980s and 1990s.
