Rapid Decline of Manitoba Moose

Winnipeg, Manitoba, November 29, 2018 – A new documentary series shares rare and unusual encounters with one of Canada’s most iconic animals while raising grave concerns about their future.

Doc Moose introduces viewers to Dr. Vince Crichton, internationally recognized expert on moose biology and management. During his over 40-year career at Manitoba’s Wildlife and Ecosystem Protection Branch, and despite his best efforts, Dr. Crichton witnessed the species’ dramatic decline.

“We had a population of around 30,000 to 35,000 moose in 1982 when we seriously started our conservation efforts,” says the internationally recognized expert on moose biology and management. “Our goal was to grow that, but now province-wide we have less than 15,000 animals. “

Doc Moose is the latest offering from Electric Monk Media, an independent media company in Winnipeg’s Exchange District whose video and virtual reality portfolio include strong messages on reconnecting with the natural world. The series is on available free, on-demand to all Bell MTS Fibe TV customers and is available on YouTube and Vimeo:
