Online Questionnaire Available for Five-Year Moose Management Plan

The Provincial Government is continuing to seek input from stakeholders and the general public on the development of a five-year moose management plan for the island portion of the province. In addition to ongoing public consultation sessions currently being held across the province, an online questionnaire is now available for people to provide input. The online questionnaire can be accessed at www.gov.nl.ca/env/ until November 8.

“I encourage residents who are unable to attend one of our sessions to complete our online questionnaire, or submit a written submission through email or regular mail,” said the Honorable Tom Hedderson, Minister of Environment and Conservation. “Public engagement is a critical element in gathering feedback to help guide our future management decisions.”

A series of public consultation sessions are ongoing to discuss how moose are currently managed, to solicit feedback on future management decisions, and to understand how the public views the resource.

Remaining sessions are scheduled for the following locations from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.:

Corner Brook October 29 Marble Mountain Resort
Grand Falls-Windsor October 30 Mount Peyton Hotel
Port aux Basques November 1 Hotel Port aux Basques

Individuals interested in attending a session are asked to pre-register by calling toll-free at 1-855-637-2064 or email mooseplan@gov.nl.ca

Input can also be provided by email at mooseplan@gov.nl.ca, or regular mail at:
