The Search for Moon Goose in Siberia / Novosibirsk - experiment preparations
Moone Geese are a very rare species of migration birds, in particular as they spend quite some time of their amazing lives with migration between the earth and its trabant (rather then "just" flying to the south and back). Consequently finding them in the vast territories of   Sibiria / Novosibirsk wasn't easy at all.

Thanks to a group of local experts we where finally able to launch the experiment with a herd of 13 Geese - with 6 specimen coming from the farm of Alexandra Deribas in Akademgorodok and 7 from a small village in the district Chistoezersk approx. 400 km east of N`sk.
