Canadian Geese invasion

Nathan Turoff, Critter Columnist

Last week, a large flock of Canadian Geese were spotted on campus. 

Canadian Geese have spread all over North America, especially along the East and West coasts of the United States. 

They are usually migratory, however, many of them have become permanent residents here at UNF.

 This is due to suitable weather conditions year-round, as well as plenty of freshwater bodies and a lack of major predators.

 They are well adapted to living in many environments, regardless of the level of human activity. They are often seen as pests, but they are protected under federal law. Therefore, they should not be interacted with at all.
