UINR is working on a project with Parks Canada to reverse forest loss in Cape Breton Highlands National Park by removing a small number of moose from a small area of North Mountain.
Since being reintroduced in 1947, moose numbers have drastically increased in the Park and today, moose populations are greater than what the forests can support, affecting the entire ecosystem.
The Hyperabundant Moose Management Plan for North Mountain will help restore forest health in the area.
A harvest will be led by UINR with qualified Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq harvesters.
We put together a FAQ to answer questions you may have on the harvest.
