Directed research on climate change and moose decline
Control of predator populations
Establish areas with suitable habitat conditions that are off-limits to industry and associated road networks in order to create moose population sources.
Enhanced management of disease vectors like white tailed deer
If evidence shows harvest rates are unsustainable, suspend all moose hunting in that region until the population recovers
Allow forest disturbance to create new moose habitat
Mandatory recording and sharing of all moose hunting numbers between wildlife managers and harvesters
Increased regulation and penalty for illegal hunting practices.
Increased resources for population monitoring initiatives
