Magpie Goose Management Program

The Magpie Goose is an abundant Northern Territory waterbird, with the Northern Territory supporting the world's largest population and major breeding areas. The species is considered "iconic" for the Territory and both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people identify strongly with the species. It is of particular significance to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal hunters and is the cornerstones species of the Territory's annual waterfowl hunting season.

All activity related to the Magpie Goose is managed under the auspices of the "Management Program for the Magpie Goose (Anseranas semipalmata) in the Northern Territory of Australia, 2009-2014". This management program is still in force.
