Summary of Proposal:
Moose and wolves both play important roles in Ontario's ecosystems and are integral components of the province's rich biodiversity. Recent population surveys have shown declines in moose populations in many parts of northern Ontario. Populations of gray wolves and their hybrids in northern Ontario have been relatively stable.
The Moose Project is an effort being undertaken to further implement Ontario's moose management policies that were approved in 2009, including developing new moose population objectives and exploring potential management actions to address concerns about moose populations.
