Moose: Life of a Twig EaterHigh up in Canada's Rockies, by a crystal-clear lake rimmed with old-growth forest, a moose is born. At the best of times, the odds are stacked against this leggy 35-pounder surviving its first year; normally less than 50% do. But now populations across many parts of North America are in steep decline and scientists believe one of the reasons is that fewer moose calves are surviving their first year, so it has never been more important to understand what happens in the first year of a moose's life. One intrepid cameraman undertakes the challenge of following and filming a mother moose and her newborn calf for a full year in Jasper National Park, a rugged wilderness that covers over 4,000 square miles, to see how it grows, how it learns from its mother, and how it avoids danger. This stunningly intimate nature documentary takes viewers deep inside the world of moose to experience a mother's love and a calf's first year of life in a very up close and personal way.

Wake up call
Review by Grizzly on 02/15/21 review stating Wake up call
Amidst beautiful and riveting photography, this edition of Nature shares the struggle to avoid extinction that moose are now facing. The documentary of mothers and their young showcase the climate change related diseases and the natural predation that are threatening this animal from Minnesota to Alberta.

Good, but why do they always have to do that?
Review by Warblersong on 07/17/20 review stating Good, but why do they always have to do that?
Excellent content and footage, but Nature always disappoints me by being less scientific than they should be. (the guy who raised wolverines like pets, the biologists silly comments as he ascended into the harpy eagle nest....) In this episode (spoiler alert), when something happens to one of the moose, the scientist grieves a little too much for my liking. Its okay to have human emotions about an animal one has been living closely with for months, but they should at least make the point while grieving that this is how NATURE works! If he were studying wolves instead of moose, hed have been cheering that now theyll make it through winter. Animals eat other animals in NATURE! Duh. Marlon Perkins got that through to us decades ago -- why does Nature think we cant handle it today?

Moose - What a Majestic Creature
Review by Colorado O. on 07/17/20 review stating Moose - What a Majestic Creature
I have had the rare privilege of seeing two female moose this spring with their yearling calves here in the Colorado Rockies. The film Moose: Life of a Twig Eater was exceptional in the beautiful surroundings of the Jasper National Park in British Columbia, Canada. The close-up filming was exceptional and the information given so helpful in better understanding the life of the moose, their habitats and needs. We are privileged to be surrounded by wild creatures whose lives are shorter than our own, but many are in dire circumstances on so many fronts. There are important lessons of responsibility, truthfulness and love in any relationship with wild creatures that go far beyond stewardship.
