CUTE NEW ARRIVALS AT SEAVIEW WILDLIFE
It has been a very eggg…citing day at the ranch after these beautiful Hawaiian Gosling’s hatched in the early hours of this morning!
Hawaiian Geese also known as Nene are found only on the Hawaiian Islands. They are the world’s rarest goose and in the 1950’s there were only 30 left in the wild. Fortunately they breed well within captivity and due to conservation efforts this number has successfully risen over the years and the Nene population now stands at around 2,500.
All four now have hatched and are a healthy weight and are living together in a warm cosy brooder being looked after by the Animal Care Team. Will keep you updated on their progress……..
