The present global coordinator is Bart Ebbinge, based at the Alterra, Green World Research Institute in Wageningen, the Netherlands. Regional coordinators are Ray Alisauskas based at the Canadian Wildlife Service in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada) for North America and Masayuki Kurechi of the Japanese Association for Wild Geese Protection in Wakayanagi (Japan) for East Asia.
