Proposed Logging Raises Concerns for Mainland Moose Territory

While concerns are being raised about the prospect of logging in forests known to be habitat for the endangered mainland moose, Nova Scotia’s Lands and Forestry minister says consideration for the animal is built into any harvest plan.

The provincial harvest plans map currently lists 114.34 hectares of land along or near Upper Porcupine and Lower Porcupine lakes in Queens County, an area that’s part of the Tobeatic Wildlife Management Area.
