State to discuss moose study
CONCORD — On Monday, New Hampshire Fish and Game Department moose biologist Kristine Rines will recap progress of the study during the two-week collaring period (through Feb. 2) and take questions about the moose study and the status of New Hampshire’s moose population.
Background on the moose mortality study underway in New Hampshire, and a link to video may be found at wildnh.com/Newsroom/2014/Q1/moose_study_launch.html.
In a previous statement, Rines summarized the impetus for the study.
“While regional moose populations are indeed facing some serious threats, moose are not on the verge of disappearing from the New Hampshire landscape, but they are declining,” Rines said earlier.
“We don’t know what the future holds, but we’re hopeful that a combination of research and management efforts will allow us to do all we can to secure the future of New Hampshire’s invaluable moose resources.”
