When moose in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are feeling amorous, they will now have a little more room to get romantic.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada announced it's received another donation of land for its Moose Sex Project.
The project is meant to encourage breeding between Nova Scotia moose, where they are endangered, and the healthy population in New Brunswick.
The NCC has secured 410 acres in the area of the Chignecto Isthmus land bridge, and 2,000 acres across it. The Chignecto is the only route for wildlife to move in to and out of Nova Scotia. The wooded area, located along Route 16, was donated by Kenneth Lund and his late brother, Daniel Lund, of Sackville, and is in a strategic location for conservation, the NCC said.
The land donation will also provide habitat for the Canada lynx, bobcat, bear and is a stopover for migrating waterbirds.
