Spring survey of emperor geese in southwestern Alaska

The uncertain status of the emperor goose prompted the Pacific Flyway study committee, recently charged with the responsibility of drafting a management plan for the species, to call for the initiation of a spring survey effort to determine the population size. The initial effort, from 23•27 April 1981, was successful and 91,267 emperor geese were observed during an aerial survey in coastal southwestern Alaska. Ice and weather conditions apparently play a significant roll in determining the rate of movement and distribution of these birds in spring and it was not until 3 and 4 May that the survey could be successfully completed in 1982. A total of 100,643 emperor geese were observed, a 10.3 percent increase over 1981.
