Goose Roundups are Happening NOW Important Updates and Announcements
Please Attend Wednesday's Rally What: Press Conference & Rally for NYC's Canada Geese - Featuring Aviation Expert Ken Paskar When: Wednesday, June 26 from 5pm-6pm Where: Columbus Circle, Central Park  Details and RSVP on Facebook and MeetUp 
GooseWatch NYC will hold a groundbreaking press conference and rally at Central Park with In Defense of Animals to speak out against the killing of Canada geese in New York City parks, and announce support from Ken Paskar, President of Friends of La Guardia Airport and former lead safety representative for the FAA Safety Team.
Mr. Paskar will address the fallacy that killing NYC's geese improves aviation safety and reduces bird strikes. Speakers will also include GooseWatch NYC's David Karopkin, Anja Heister, M.S. Biologist and Director of the Wild and Free-Habitats Campaign at In Defense of Animals, Brian Shapiro, NY State Director of the Humane Society of the United States, Edita Birnkrant, NY Director of Friends of Animals, and NYC Wildlife Advocate Mary Beth Purdy Artz. Please join advocates from across New York City and beyond to speak out against NYC's Canada goose slaughter. 
Roundups are Happening Right Now Last week we were contacted by five different individuals who witnessed USDA Wildlife Services agents in action - rounding up geese, smiling about it, and driving away. But these were also missed opportunities, because the witnesses could have called us to get the word out and taken video footage. We are asking that anyone who sees a USDA pickup:
  • call 567-NY-GOOSE / 567-694-6673 so we can get an alert out
  • capture video of the roundup operations
We need more people to join our park patrol team, watch NYC's potential victim geese, wait for the USDA, print and distribute our new flyers (thanks to Rafaella and Susan), and write chalk bombs
If you didn't receive a test emergency alert on Friday, we don't have your phone number, and you cannot be contacted in case there is a roundup in progress near you. Text "NYGOOSE" to to 55678 opt in, or to send any other message. With thanks to MobileMatters, regular rates apply.
