Several environmental conservation organizations, including the NYS DEC, have collaborated in a yearlong project tracking moose populations in upstate NY.

After months of tracking moose movements across Adirondack Park through collaring and collecting reported sightings, data from the Adirondack Moose Project’s second winter will be analyzed by late March.

During the first moose collaring back in January 2015, 12 moose were fitted with collars containing GPS transmitters that pinpointed their location every two hours. The GPS collars track habitat use and calf survival and health.
