This beautiful goose is to be found in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Hawaii and even the coast of Siberia. It is a social goose and can often be found in very large flocks near ponds, marshes and the shoreline. Their diet consists of seaweed, eelgrass, sea lettuce, algae, beach rye, sandwort, grasses and sedges, crowberries, and mollusks and crustaceans. A survey in 2000 revealed that the species was in serious decline with subsistence hunting and coastal oil pollution being possible factors.
