Icon of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador
The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth – the people, the place, the culture! Bordering on the North Atlantic Ocean, it is Canada’s most easterly province.
About the Moose
Moose extend from the Alaska boundary all across Canada to the eastern tip of Newfoundland and Labrador. The animal was introduced to the island portion of the province (near Howley, Newfoundland and Labrador) in 1904 as part of a wider government initiative to develop the Island’s interior. It was with the hope that it would attract big game hunters. At the time this was a new market for the then Newfoundland railway. The meat would also sustain workers needed in the burgeoning mining and forestry industries – a key to diversifying the country’s fishing-based economy. With few natural predators and finding Newfoundland the perfect habitat, moose thrived and the rest is history.
Today, moose are so numerous that they pose a hazard to drivers, and their voracious appetites are altering the native forest. It is a part of the Newfoundland identity and an important game animal, with approximately 22,000 being harvested yearly.
A popular song, Gotta Get Me Moose B’y, was written and sung by iconic Newfoundland group, Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers.
