#MooseMonday This weeks winner comes in from Danny Coyne! Some might recognize him as the face behind our friends at @BCFishn', now he looks like he's BCMoosin' ! A great trail camera shot of a cow and calf. Did you know that under normal conditions, single births are the rule, and only 10 to 20 percent of adult cows produce twins. Newborn calves typically weigh 11 to 16 kg and can stand on their first day.

#MooseMonday Did you know that the antlers of older Moose are usually palmate, but they vary greatly in size and number of points and are not a reliable means of determining the Moose’s age. However, antlers usually continue to grow until the Moose is about ten years old.

Its #MooseMonday ! This weeks picture is submitted by Richard Pylychuk, and is of "Jesse' the moose. Would this be a 'moosie' ? Great picture!

#WetlandsWednesday If you build it, they will come. These shots were taken by Michele Halleran, a private landowner who, along with her partner Terry, collaborated with the BC Wildlife Federation to restore wetlands on their property in Meadow Creek. This is the first time they have ever observed Sandhill Cranes in the region. Check out the BCWF Wetlands Bog Blog to learn more #savebcfish #savebcwildlife #huntingisconservation

#moosemonday Did you know that Moose are well adapted to snowy regions because of their long legs, which help them to travel through deep snow. Field studies have shown that Moose have little or no difficulty moving around in snow up to 40 cm deep and only slight difficulty in snow depths of 40 to 70 cm deep.

#FactFriday It seems that Spring is finally here! And you know what that means: Babies! Babies of all shapes and sizes. Fawns usually cause the most concern among the public. They are cute, visible, and seemingly abandoned and helpless. Did you know that unfortunately hundreds of babies are separated from their families each spring due to human intervention? Don't hesitate to call a Wildlife Rescue Center, or the Conservation Officer service at 1-877-952-7277 if you notice any of the following; 1) You see an animal that you know is orphaned because you observed the dead parent animal, 2) The parent hasn’t returned for several hours or even up to a day 3) If the animal is clearly injured or in distress. Look but don’t touch: Young animals are rarely orphaned so leave them where they belong. #ThatsaFact #BCWF #SaveBCFish #SaveBCWildlife
