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.You can view the maps in Google Earth if you have this software loaded on your computer. This can be obtained free by going to http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html.
