Population Växjö

In February 2009, we marked 25 moose in the area around Växjö (5 bulls and 20 cows). In January 2010, additional six moose were marked in the area in order to replace those we had lost in 2009. In early 2012, additional 39 moose (29 cows, 10 bulls) were marked to replace some of the losses from previous years as well as to expand the research effort in this reference area. The area is very exciting not only with respect to the moose and forestry issues after the storm "Gudrun", but also with respect to the fact that different ungulates co-exist in the area (multi-species system) , as well as for issues concerning wildlife and traffic. At the beginning of 2016, a total of 65 adult moose (49 cows, 16 bulls) has been marked in the area, and we have been able to document the birth and survival 208 calves of the year.
