Minnesota DNR seeks public input on moose management and research plan

Citizens interested in Minnesota moose can now provide input on
the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ proposed moose
research and management plan.

The public comment period begins Aug.15 and ends Sept. 30. Comments
will be taken online only.

The draft plan incorporates many of the recommendations of the
18-member Moose Advisory Committee, which was a group of
individuals from diverse backgrounds who all had an interest in the
future of moose in Minnesota. The public can review the committee’s
final report and the draft plan, and provide proposal feedback
online at www.mndnr.gov/moose. Additional comments can be
emailed to wildlife.dnr@state.mn.us.

“Moose are an important species in Minnesota and the observed
population declines are cause for concern,” said Lou Cornicelli,
big game program coordinator.”It is our hope that this plan helps
DNR prioritize research and management that benefits moose
populations.”

Public input will be reviewed and considered in September and
October. The final Minnesota moose research and management plan
will be completed in the fall.
