This large native goose lives mostly on uninhabited islands off southern Australia. Their plumage is mostly grey but they have some colour – bright pink legs and a yellow-green cere, a waxy swelling, on the beak. Unlike most other animals, Cape Barren geese can drink salty water, so they can stay on windswept islands, eating grass and nesting in tussocks.
Our iconic Aussie is in danger. Please help us keep them around forever.
