Between December and February, staff are using aircraft to look for moose and their tracks in fresh, deep snow. Survey information about the number, age, and sex of moose is used to inform moose and habitat management. Most of our survey flights will take place over Northern Ontario, but we will also survey areas around Bancroft, Parry Sound, Bracebridge, and Peterborough, among others. As is the case every year, survey completion depends on appropriate weather conditions and adequate snow to ensure staff can reliably detect moose and their tracks from aircraft.
