Each year, partners from the Minnesota DNR, Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, and the 1854 Treaty Authority collaborate on an aerial moose survey in northeastern Minnesota.

About 54 survey plots are selected for monitoring. It was -15 degrees when this year’s survey began on January 16, and there was more snow on the ground at the time. According to the Minnesota DNR, biologists generally like to have more snow on the ground to improve visibility. This year’s survey wrapped up on Friday, February 2.
