    Thank you - it makes me happy to share. I remember struggling, without the references. By the time that most teachers have acquired them, they are too busy to share. In this digital age, if you are handy with a computer, the world is your oyster.

    It helps to be interested in almost everything. This thread started as predominantly science, but has found a much wider audience because I simply follow what interests me.

    Scientists are providing enrichment within in the environment for many species besides humans!




    And then there are the humans. . .

    I love these videos. It clearly shows that all creatures respond to enrichment within their environment!

    I am not a fan of invasive species -- few science teachers are. Although I have some nuisance species that are highest on my list (deer), they aren't invasive. They have always been here (NJ), and their numbers are the fault of NJ residents who have large lot sizes without any predators - the deer proliferate, except for those killed by hunters, including those who hunts simply by driving our cars, a risky proposition in my state.

    On the other hand, we also have some true invasive species and highest on that list is non migrating Canada Geese. Once they stay, the offspring will remain non migratory, since they will never learn how or when such a journey should occur. Some people love the geese, like the excess deer, and feed them, making the problems worse. There are ways to decrease the number of the nuisance geese legally, but, as a science teacher who has broached the subject on multiple occasions, it always ends with me seeming like Cruella. That said, I am going to offer up some resources that deal with the problem of geese who are NOT where they are supposed to be when they SHOULDN'T be here. Try to put the Bambi loving attitudes out of mind, and look at the logic of creatures who have invaded areas where they don't belong, and then investigate the part that man has played in this fiasco. I love animals, but in the right numbers, in the right place, and in the right time. When you get any of those factors out of wack, you have created harmful pests with dire consequences. I love animals, but I can tell when things are out of balance and bad for us all, in more ways than we have considered.

    There is, of course, more than one way to reduce the goose egg count. Let me point out that if you destroy the entire nest and all eggs, the pair will create a new nest and lay a new, entire clutch of eggs, which is counter productive. The goal is to leave the pair with a gosling or two, which they will consider successful, keeping them from laying another clutch. Geese can be quite ferocious, so consider yourself fore-warned!



    \
    What a stupid adult - not good for kids but an example of the protective nature of parent geese. The geese, in this case, seem to be heads above the human when protecting their young!
