Moose (Alces alces) are the largest member of the deer family and are an abundant and important wildlife species to First Nations and residents of northern British Columbia (BC). Recent surveys around BC have indicated declines in some populations of moose while others are stable. The Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP – Peace) identified the investigation of the factors limiting moose survival in the Williston Basin as a priority for a directed study. The overall goal of the 5 year study is to improve our understanding of the ecological factors that limit moose survival in representative portions of the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program – Peace Region.
