OTTAWA – A conservation group has teamed up with the Canadian tax man to offer deductions for land donations to help lovelorn moose.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada is looking for land between the country’s easternmost Nova Scotia and New Brunswick provinces to create a corridor wildlife can wander through. The hope is that New Brunswick moose will migrate to Nova Scotia to mate.
While New Brunswick’s moose population numbers more than 29,000, Nova Scotia’s has been thinned to only about 1,000. Launched in 2013 under the catchy banner “The Moose Sex Project,” the nonprofit has so far secured more than 2,060 acres.
