    Moose Population stabilized in Maine

    https://www.pressherald.com/2018/03/...moose-permits/

    Vt is close to stopping the hunt due to high mortality and I think NH is also cutting their numbers.

    At least there is some good news, when I was growing up moose could only be seen roughly north of the Canadian National railroad across Maine, nowhere reliably in NH and VT.

    This got me wondering about what roles moose play in the eco system and I found an interesting older article: http://www.mtu.edu/news/stories/2009...onnection.html

    I found it interesting to think of them is nitrogen transporters.

    Similarly, salmon carcasses left in the woods by bears are a significant source of soil nutrients near streams in the PNW.
