'Moose Sex Project' aims for love corridor between N.S., N.B. (Canada)

The Nature Conservancy of Canada has launched a fundraising program in the Maritimes over Christmas to help moose find their way to some cross-border love.

The program, dubbed "The Moose Sex Project," is aiming to raise $35,000 to buy a narrow strip of the Chignecto Isthmus a strip of land between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Andrew Holland, spokesman for the conservation group, says creating a corridor for wildlife may allow more of the New Brunswick moose population to cross over to Nova Scotia and find mates.

The Nova Scotia mainland moose have been endangered since 2003, and the conservancy says that ensuring corridors between provinces may help preserve the declining population.

Now these provinces will have to find a way to keep people like Sarah Palin away...

8. Why we have protected areas

The province of Nova Scotia currently lists 24 species under its new endangered species legislation, the latest being the mainland moose. There are more to come. Less than 9 per cent of Nova Scotia's land area currently lies within protected natural areas. This percentage must be increased in order to meet our obligations and to conserve native biodiversity.
