Moose and Wolf Abundance - La Mauricie
Intensive tree cutting and certain silvicultural practices carried out around La Mauricie National Park have fragmented moose forest habitat. In addition, the eastern wolf plays a key role in moose population dynamics in the park. In view of the forest habitat disturbances, sometimes harsh weather conditions, aging of the park's vegetation, the effects of peripheral hunting and the probable influence of other factors, it is essential to monitor changes in moose and wolf populations. Wolf populations and packs will be tracked using a camera device, winter monitoring of trails on an established route and observations gathered by employees and the general public. Moose density will be monitored using aerial helicopter surveys and harvest densities.
