Did You Know? The Andean goose does not face any immediate threats as they are well isolated due to the high altitude and wide range they live in. These beautiful birds rarely come into contact with humans.
Rare in zoos, the Buttonwood Park Zoo is currently home to five Andean geese. Check them out in the bison habitat.
