Moose Affected By Starvation And Poor Habitat

With this years long winter and late spring, we spoke to Area Management Biologist Jeff Selinger with the Soldotna ADF&G about the impact this is having on the peninsula’s wildlife.

 

 

Selinger: We’re still seeing animals dying from starvation, things haven’t greened up yet so the animals didn’t make it through the winter in very good condition and they’re having a tough time right now.

 

We asked Selinger what specific areas are seeing the worst habitat for wildlife.

 

 

Selinger: We’ve got documentation of numerous animals dying this year of starvation, in particular the north western end of the Kenai Peninsula and a lot of it is related to poor habitat conditions.
