Population Öland

Population Öland

In February 2012 we marked 25 moose on the island Öland in Southern Sweden of which were five male moose. The area is in particular of research interest as local observations record unusual low summer survival of calves-of-the-year. To study this observation and to be able to follow calf summer survival more closely, we marked parts of the calves-of-the-year. To further compare the calf summer survival on Öland with corresponding calf survival in other areas in Southern Sweden, we also marked parts of the calves-of-the-year in the reference areas around Växjö and at Öster Malma.
