Magpie Goose in flight, Wirra-lo Wetlands

The return of Magpie Geese to Victorian wetlands

It’s a sign that anything is possible when you see a bird species that was locally extinct flocking in great numbers at your local wetland. In a time of doom and gloom about Australia’s great contribution to species loss, the large and magnificent Magpie Goose is flourishing for the first time in 120 years in many wetlands throughout northern Victoria and in other parts of the state.
