Moose: Life of a Twig Eater

NATURE: Moose, Life of a Twig Eater

 

High up in Canada’s Rockies, by a crystal-clear lake rimmed with old-growth forest, a moose is born. At the best of times, the odds are stacked against this leggy 35-pounder surviving its first year. Now, with moose populations across many parts of North America in steep decline, scientists are trying to understand what happens in the first year of a moose’s life. This stunningly intimate episode, filmed over 13 months in the spectacular wilds of Jasper National Park, takes viewers deep inside the world of a moose calf.

from their base in the heart of New Hampshire, Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Gillian Burke bring us the latest happenings from deep in the American woods. We learn about the science of how this spectacular leaf change comes about, and meet some of the smaller residents who change colour along with the leaves.

 

Michaela has been on a moose mission, finding out about a tiny but deadly enemy of these massive beasts, and Gillian is looking for red efts in the leaf litter – a brightly coloured newt that comes out in damp conditions.
