Table 1 Winter capture regions and subsequent summer breeding regions of 75 greater white-fronted geese (Anser albifrons frontalis) captured and fit with GPS-ACC-GSM transmitters during winters 2016–2019. Values and percentages indicate the number and percent of individuals breeding in each specific region in relation to the total number of individuals captured in that region (n). Regions include Interior Alaska, USA (Interior AK), Western Alaskan coast and Seward Peninsula, Alaska, USA (West AK/Seward Pen.), the North Slope of Alaska, USA (AK North Slope), mainland Northwest Territories, Canada (NWT), Western Nunavut and high Arctic islands of Nunavut, Canada (West NU/Arctic Isl), central Nunavut, Canada, and eastern Nunavut, Canada
