PBS and PBS Distribution have announced they will release another new episode of PBS’ hit wildlife series Nature next month.
Nature: Moose – Life of a Twig Eater will be released Tuesday, March 22nd. The hour-long program will be available exclusively on DVD and will retail for MSRP of $24.99. It follows cameraman and naturalist Hugo Kitching as he spends a year in the wilderness with moose populations. He does so in order to try and uncover the source of an uncommonly high mortality rate among juvenile moose. His time is spent largely in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. Along with his work following a young mother moose and its calf, the program also covers work being done in Grand Portage, MN where the moose population has declined by some sixty-four percent since 1990. Viewers will see researchers capture young calves just long enough to collect blood samples and put tracking collars on them so as to get answers about their population decline. Current results have shown that brainworm and winter ticks are two of the leading causes behind the decline. There are other causes that are discussed at more length in the program.
