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. 

Roundups on Long Island

Goose round-ups are happening on Long Island! We got a message which we passed along to Long Island Orchestrating for Nature - LION that there was a truckload of geese being sent to be slaughter seen on Route 107 in Jericho this past Friday. It was discovered that several towns, state parks, and other locations have permits from Fish and Wildlife Service to kill thousands of Canada geese, as well as other birds like herring and gulls. Please sign and share LION's new petition and contact them at longislandorganizingfornature@gmail.com to get involved.

 

Vegan Drinks Thursday
our Press Conference/Rally is on WEDNESDAY, then on THURSDAY come out to Vegan Drinks! GooseWatch NYC is the beneficiary, we have some great raffle items including our tee shirts & stickers, a photo-to-canvas, cases of The Regal Vegan's Faux Gras, two bottles of GooseWatch white wine (no relation), and more. Details and RSVP here.
