See a Moose? There’s an App for That

Wednesday, August 24, 2016 @ 5:57 AM


Prince  George, B.C.- The Province of B.C. has developed an app to help track the moose population in the province.

There are between 120 thousand and 200 thousand moose in B.C. and the new interactive  app  will  allow  the public to assist  biologists monitor  the moose populations.  moosetrackerThe information will  help the Province in  its  Moose management plan.

The app allows user to upload information  on the number, sex and location of moose they  encounter.   The data  will help identify any emerging issues.
The app also includes a digital version of 2016-2018 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis, a searchable, interactive summary of hunting regulations throughout British Columbia.

Hunters aren’t always in areas where there is cell phone coverage,  but that won’t impact the app.   The Ministry  of Forests Lands and Natural Resources  says in areas where there is no cell phone reception, the app automatically stores the inputted data then sends it out once reception is restored.

The app is  available  for download through iTunes.


Pokémoose GO?

ya, pretty sketchy way of getting data for use in managing wildlife.

I agree with Bent. Seems a total waste of time and effort. We will have reports from different people on different days reporting the same moose, etc; etc;.

Is there an app to locate less than stellar civil servants.??

Looks like the stellar civil servants and the moose are out of luck as far as my participation goes! Of the G7 countries Canada is the most expensive when it comes to smart phones at 41 dollars monthly, Germany at 17 dollars monthly is the least expensive! My ordinary cell phone costs 11 dollars a month! Sorry people, but 1,200 bucks a year for two smart phones is totally out of the question! I decided to give that much to local deserving charities instead!

What could go wrong? lol

“inputted data” ??

I just love how people are making up words.

Maybe the ministry needs to hire some biologists . . .gu
