The state is tracking GPS collared moose in eastern Washington to determine movement patterns, survival and reproduction over the next three years. The results of this study are critical to long-term conservation of moose in Washington. Moose (Alces alces) play an important role in the ecology of eastern Washington and have cultural significance for the region's human inhabitants.
If you see or have seen a collared moose you can report your sightings and photos online at: http://wdfw.wa.gov/viewing/moose/
Information requested is time and location of the sighting, color of the collar, number of moose in the group and if any calves are present.
The Wildlife Cooperative Research Unit at the University of Montana is also participating in this study.
