A few months ago NDOW shared a video Facebook follower Katherine Schripsema captured of a moose walking through sagebrush in Wells, Nevada. The video quickly became NDOW's most popular social media post of 2018.
We received comments from people expressing their surprise at a moose being seen in Nevada. We also received more than a dozen messages from other Facebook followers sharing pictures and videos they've captured of their own moose sightings in the state.
The videos popularity even inspired NDOW biologists to start a citizen science project to better track Nevada's moose populations.
In this week's Nevada Wild, Ashley Sanchez and Aaron Keller sit down with NDOW Big Game Staff Specialist Cody McKee to talk about growing moose populations in the state, how citizen science is used to better understand the species, and what you can do to help.
