Concerns About N.H.'s Moose Population

moose_0.jpg

Long before Bullwinkle, has the moose been an iconic favorite in the state. In fact, naturalists for years have referred to them as 'charismatic megafauna'.  But recently the numbers of these gentle giants have reduced, some blame disease, others climate change. Now the state is doling out nearly $700.00 to tag and study the antlered animal. Today we learn more about the moose and what's being done to bring its numbers back.

Guests:

  • Eric Orff: consultant to the National Wildlife Federation and former Merrimack County New Hampshire Fish and Game Commissioner
  • Erika Butler: Wildlife Veterinarian and lead investigator on the adult moose mortality project for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources
