Take a gander at Seaview's new arrivals

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - 11:40

A RARE breed population has been boosted thanks to an Isle of Wight animal park.
Seaview Wildlife Encounter welcomed its latest arrivals this morning (Tuesday), a trio of Hawaiian Geese — also known as Nene.
They are the world’s rarest breed of goose and in the 1950s numbers in the wild plummeted to just 30, but thanks to breeding programmes and conservation efforts numbers have risen to 2,500.
