Moose Sex Project

If you were gettin’ it on with your mate, how would you feel if you didn't have any space to get'er done? Well that’s exactly how moose feel when they don’t have enough space to get a little honey on a biscuit. It’s important for animals in our country to reproduce so that Canadians can enjoy wildlife.

When it comes to life, animals should be treated like humans, with tender loving care. I think that if moose need more space to “get it on,” then we should care about this project. If we as humans don't care for animals in our country, then we can say bye bye to wildlife. I think it’s important to care about the animals, such as moose, in our wildlife because if we want more moose than we should give them their space to reproduce, but people just need to realize that there’s more than humans in this atmosphere. I think we just need to put ourselves in moose’ shoes, and realize what it would be like if there was no space to let some sparks fly - if you know what I mean.

“BANG, Did ya get him dad?” As a hunter it hurts me to know that there is a low count in the moose population. As someone who grew up as a hunter it devastates me to hear that the moose population is near extinct. I truly do believe it though and unfortunately have seen it first hand over the years. I have hunted moose for probably almost ten years now and still have not personally got one. Me and my dad fly up north every year in the fall around the rut for moose. I did not go last year though because it hasn’t been enjoyable as previous years. because the shortage is been just brutal and we haven't seen anything in like the past 5 years.

I am glad to hear that people are starting to realize that this is a problem and stepping up to the plate to make a change. If the problem is that they aren't able to reproduce because of location, and boundaries of where they can do it, thats what needs to be fixed. Now that the problem has been diagnosed everyone is going to have to take a step in the right direction and do their part to fix this problem. There are things we could do such as cutting back on the hunting, making places more accessible and even have a no hunt season to reduce the shortage.

Male Moose: “You really seemed to be enjoying yourself, honey.”
Female Moose: “That was a car horn, Borace! Nice try.”

Everybody needs the right ambiance when following their animal instincts. Moose are no different, I’m sure. Who could get in the mood when cars rip through and garbage litters the bedroom? I think moose need their space to live and love. That is why I’m in favor of the “Moose Sex Project.”

Canada needs to be more aggressive when it comes to protecting its wildlife and their homes. We are so blessed to have such beautiful landscapes and diverse wildlife: polar bears, lynx, arctic foxes, and moose. People come from all over the world to see these creatures, and I hope they are around for my grandchildren to enjoy.

How do you feel about baiting in wildlife photography?

It’s a great way to get stunning wildlife shots
When used in moderation, I think it’s fine
Seems a bit like cheating to me
It’s a selfish disruption that shouldn’t be tolerated
