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.
