BC modernizes moose management with Moose Tracker app

The Ministry of Forests and the BC Wildlife Federation are bringing the province’s wildlife management strategy into the 21st century with an app for mapping moose populations.

The BC Moose Tracker app will allow members of the public to upload information – including number, sex and location – of moose they encounter in the wild.

The information will be sent directly to an online database. Data collected will help wildlife biologists develop management strategies and identify emerging trends in BC’s moose population.

“The province is committed to ensuring sustainable wildlife populations throughout BC,” says Minister of Forests Steve Thomson. “The Moose Tracker app gives us a cost-effective way to identify demographic trends and inform BC’s moose management framework.”

The app was with financial support from the Habitat Conservation Trust.

You can download the app in iTunes – it includes a digital version of the 2016-2018 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis.
