Comments: As part of a multi-year collaborative research project to better understand New York’s moose population (NY Moose Study), DEC wildlife staff recently completed the fifth annual aerial survey of moose in the Adirondack Park. In 42 hours of helicopter flight time, staff observed 83 moose or groups of moose, all of which appeared healthy. Staff recorded the location, number of animals, the age and sex of each animal, and noted general habitat characteristics for each moose sighted. Data from these surveys will refine our estimate the moose population in the Adirondacks and will ultimately help inform a future moose management plan.
