Transcript of "Lessons from the Geese?"

  1. 1. Are there lessons to be learned from geese?
  2. 2. FACT 1 As each Goose flaps its wings it creates uplift for the birds that follow. By flying in a V formation, the whole flock adds 71 per cent greater flying range than if each bird flew alone.
  3. 3. FACT 2 When a Goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of flying alone. It quickly moves back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front of it.
  4. 4. FACT 3 When the lead Goose tires, it rotates back into the formation and another Goose flies to the point position.
  5. 5. FACT 4 The Geese flying in formation honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
  6. 6. FACT 5 When a Goose gets sick, wounded or shot down, two Geese drop out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it. They stay with it until it dies or is able to fly again. Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock.
  7. 7. What can we learn about learning and living from geese?
