Currently, there is concern about the influence of
increasing nesting light goose populations (lesser snow goose [Chen caerulescens caerulescens]

1999, Nack 2003, Nack and Andersen 2004, Gleason et al. 2004), and the potential interacting
effects of predators and light goose abundance on Canada goose population dynamics in northern
