Two Wildlife Stewards, Doug Whitfield and Dennis Walsh from the NH Fish & Game will be talking all about (Alces alces) Moose. Learn about the natural history of moose, where they are most likely to be found in the state, and about how climate change is impacting their survival in New Hampshire.
In this program, you'll learn that moose are skilled swimmers, how parasites decrease moose survival, what their current population numbers are in the state, and help you understand what you can do to help the largest member of the deer family.
New Hampshire Fish & Game is working to better understand the issues facing moose and developing strategies to save this large icon of the New Hampshire north. Also, hear about the amazing federal funding mechanism that supports long-term research and is largely responsible for our country's abundant fish and wildlife.
