State DEC Conducts Moose Census

(TUPPER LAKE, NY) – The state Department of Environmental Conservation is asking the public to report moose sightings as part of a multi-year project. The 2018 map of moose sightings by town indicates the vast majority of moose sightings occur within the Blue Line and North Country. The DEC estimates there are anywhere from 400 to about 1,000 moose in the state. Last year, the public reported 220 moose sightings, which the DEC said is a big jump from 2017’s 163. People who see a moose can report it online or by emailing the DEC. People can also submit photos of moose for inclusion on the DEC’s website.
