The provincial government has increased the number of moose licences available to community-based groups this year to 200 - up from 150 last year.
Charlene Johnson, Minister of Environment and Conservation, said the move will provide additional opportunities for charitable groups to access a harvested moose to support their endeavours.
Johnson noted about 300 applications were submitted in 2009 for the 150 available licences.
Applications for these charitable moose licences are now being accepted. Organizations interested in applying for a licence in any one individual moose management area are required to submit an application to the wildlife division of the Department of Environment and Conservation by June 30.
The applications are available at all provincial wildlife offices.
To qualify for a licence, charities and community groups must be incorporated as non-profit organizations. There is no cost associated with these licences.
If demand exceeds availability on a regional basis, a random draw will be held and the licences will be awarded until that regional allotment is exhausted.
