About This Project

University of Maine

Moose are Maine icons, are doing well, and continue to be hunted. During 2011, our lab collected lungs from hunter-harvested moose and inspected them for parasites; about 25% had lungworms, Echinococcus granulosus (EG), or both. This year, we would like to revisit the moose lung survey in order to reassess the current risk of EG in Maine, and to explore the overlaps between moose and coyote habitat that may be perpetuating this zoonotic parasite in Maine wildlife.
