Since 2007, DEC has completed aerial moose surveys in the Adirondacks as part of a collaborative study of the health of NY's moose population.

In 2020, a total of 83 groups of one or more moose were observed during the survey's 175 sightings, with all appearing healthy. Learn more about moose management. #DEC50
