Moose 'baby boom' in the Maritimes?

The fundraising program is aiming to raise $35,000 to buy a narrow strip of land between the two provinces.
Andrew Holland of the conservation group says the Nova Scotia mainland moose has been endangered since 2003. He says ensuring corridors between the provinces may help preserve the declining population.
According to Holland, Cape Breton moose haven't been finding their way to the mainland due to the difficulties of crossing the Strait of Canso and the population is concentrated in the north of the island.
That means the agency is looking to New Brunswick's healthy population as a potential source of mates for the Nova Scotia moose.
