Press Briefing on NH Moose Study
CONCORD, N.H. – A press briefing regarding the moose study currently underway in New Hampshire will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, February 3, 2014, in the conference room at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. Members of the media are invited to attend.
Moose biologist Kristine Rines will recap progress of the study during the two-week collaring period (through February 2, 2014) and take questions about the moose study and the status of New Hampshire's moose population.
Background on the moose mortality study underway in New Hampshire, and a link to video for use along with this story, may be found at wildnh.com/Newsroom/2014/Q1/moose_study_launch.html.
In a previous statement, Rines summarized the impetus for the study: "While regional moose populations are indeed facing some serious threats, moose are not on the verge of disappearing from the New Hampshire landscape, but they are declining. We don't know what the future holds, but we’re hopeful that a combination of research and management efforts will allow us to do all we can to secure the future of New Hampshire’s invaluable moose resources."
