Recent moose population surveys have shown declining numbers of moose in some areas of northern Ontario. The Moose Project is looking at what can be done to sustain desired levels of moose populations in response to pressures, such as predators, parasites, hunting, climate and changing habitat.
As part of the Moose Project, Ontarians will be able to provide input by commenting on an Environmental Registry Posting proposing changes that could be implemented starting in the 2015 moose hunting season. Feedback and input can also be provided on what other potential actions can be taken in 2016 and beyond to address the broad range of pressures on moose populations.
There are two ways to provide feedback:
- Completing a short online survey.
- Commenting on regulatory proposals in notice 012-3413 on the Environmental Registry.
