Report a Band

Since 2012, a select number of Canada Geese within the Okanagan Valley have been fixed with coloured leg bands. The leg band data will be used to help us better understand questions on local movements and nesting patterns of geese. They will also contribute to our understanding of population size and survival. 

Band colours associated with the OVGMP include unmarked RED, WHITE and GREEN bands and alphanumeric black on YELLOW and white on LIGHT BLUE markers.
