47th North American Moose Conference & Workshop May 20-24, 2013

Nathan joined wildlife researchers from around the world at this annual event hosted by NEW HAMPSHIRE FISH & GAME DEPARTMENT, MAINE DEPARTMENT OF INLAND FISHERIES & WILDLIFE, and  VERMONT FISH & WILDLIFE DEPARTMENT.

The meeting was held at the Mountain View Grand Resort Whitefield, New Hampshire in northern New England where a renaissance of moose began in the late 1970's, and is home to >75,000 moose in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont combined – outside Alaska, no region in the USA has more moose. 

Moose have high economic, recreational, and cultural importance, and after rapid expansion, management issues include population size, crop and forest damage, parasites and disease, moose-human conflicts, and climate change.
