Toulouse or Embden Geese in NZ...?

Just wondering if anyone knows of these breeds - Toulouse or Embden Geese - being available in NZ?

They're not listed on the rare breeds directory, but someone on another forum is asking about those breeds and has some evidence that they were at least once in the country. I know nothing about geese, so thought I'd ask here. Does anyone know if they are available here?

I have never heard of them being still here and I put my feelers out in the early 1990s. Have always had an open ear and have heard nothing.

Now this does not mean they are not here but if they are they are owned and bred by someone who hasn't been sharing.

Thanks Marina - good to confirm what I suspected. I thought they would have been listed on Rare Breeds if anyone knew they were still around.... That's a shame if they were here but have (all but) disappeared.
