Can geese be used to feed the hungry

Can geese be used to feed the hungry?

This letter references the Sept. 21 article regarding the hopes that the hunting season will cut the Canada goose population to 85,000 from the current 200,000. I ask: What are the plans for all of these geese once they are killed? Will any of these birds be prepared for consumption by humans or animals?

I know many shelters and kitchens in many areas of New York State probably could use a good portion of these animals if this was allowed. Many of the birds probably are not suitable,canada goose jacket but I would guess that there would be a great number that could be consumed. Perhaps we could find a use for the goose feathers, too. Does the State Department of Environmental Conservation have any guidelines set for such practices of saving a portion of the birds for meals or other products?

When the deer populations are thinned out, many of these beautiful animals are used for the kitchens and whatnot. Why not the Canada geese as well? Yes, they are messy and a nuisance, but we took their land from them as we have taken the land from the deer. I only hope the DEC considers doing such a good deed as providing meals and other products for animal shelters and homeless/low income kitchens. I am just a caring and concerned resident interested in the process of reuse, replace and recycle.

Frommer’s top pick in Arusha

Frommer’s Travel Guides are one of the bestselling guidebooks in the USA. The series began in 1957 with the publication of Arthur Frommer’s first book. The latest entry in this popular series of travel guides contains full-color fold-out maps, suggested itineraries, and frank reviews of recommended sites to visit.

Frommer’s Kenya & Tanzania claims to be the only major guidebook to cover both of these countries in detail. A lot of international tourists arriving in Tanzania come from Kenya, so the convenience of having one book for both countries is a significant selling point.

Written by a trio of writers, two of whom currently live in Africa and a third who lived in Tanzania for years, Frommer’s has opinionated write-ups. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. The expert writers are passionate about their destinations–tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way. We are therefore very pleased that Onsea House is Frommer’s top pick in the Arusha hotels section. Also the intimate candle-lit terrace at Onsea House is described as Arusha’s finest dining experience in the Arusha restaurant section.

Jane Goodall’s 50 years in the jungle

Tonight Jane Goodall joins close friends and donors at The Royal Institution Library in London to celebrate 50 years of groundbreaking research at Gombe. Supporters will be asked to join the Jane Goodall Foundation in ensuring the next 50 years of Jane’s vision is secured through their financial contributions.

Onsea House Tanzania is contributing in the 50 years celebrations by offering a stay at Onsea House in Arusha for the auction.

Half a century has elapsed since Goodall leapt to prominence with her remarkable study of chimpanzees.
Harvested from patient observation of a chimpanzee colony in Gombe, Tanzania, her insights smashed stereotypes of chimps as circus animals or cuddly toys.
The primates were revealed as smart and socially complex, able to organise their community and use tools: in other words, they were a lot like us. The divide between Homo sapiens and Pan troglodytes became blurred forever.
