The Lesser White-fronted Goose Anser erythropus (Linnaeus, 1758) (other languages) is at present one of the most endangered bird species in the Palearctic. The clearly most important negative factor is the high mortality due to poaching. Also loss of natural habitat contribute negatively. It is a habitat specialist, in contrast to the close relative the White-fronted Goose, who has adapted to feeding in agricultural land.
The 'Portal to the Lesser White-fronted Goose' is meant to be a resource for information about wild populations and supply information about ongoing research and conservation.
