An international conservation plan for the Greenland white-fronted goose population was initiated by the countries within its range (United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, and Greenland/Denmark) in the early 1990s (Stroud, 1993).
In the late 1970s, the total Greenland white-fronted goose population was down to about 15 000 geese (Ruttledge and Ogilvie, 1979), but hunting bans on the wintering grounds in Scotland and Ireland resulted in an increase of the wintering population to about 30 000 geese in the early 1990s (Fox et al.
To contribute to the conservation of the Greenland white-fronted goose, the geese should be protected from disturbances caused by mineral exploration and other activities on the eight highest-ranked areas (A, 16, B, 20, 18, 47, 2, and 6).
The Greenland white-fronted goose is already protected from hunting during this period, as hunting is allowed only from 16 August to 30 April (Greenland Home Rule, 1995).

The Greenland white-fronted goose is in decline but observers don't know whether this is down to the effect of climate change on their breeding grounds or competition from Canada geese moving into Greenland as temperatures rise.
