Update 2016

An aerial survey of moose populations in Quetico Provincial Park conducted in 2009, revealed that the calf:cow ratio were the lowest ever recorded. Around the region, varying results were concluded. In 2010, a joint radio-collaring project commenced involving: Quetico Provincial Park, Grand Portage Indian Reservation, Voyageurs National Park and Superior National Forest. As a result five females (two with calves) and one male were collared. A collaborative research team is currently monitoring their movements to determine calving and mortality. The radio collars stopped working in 2013.

5 moose were collared in 2014.  Two of the moose (collar #31460, 31462) have since died.
