About

Moosewatchnl.com is a real-time location based application bringing awareness to recent moose sightings on Newfoundland and Labrador roads and highways.

Moose are a major problem in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Research has estimated that there are approximately 600-800 moose-vehicle collisions per year in our province. Too many of these collisions have resulted in fatalities. Families are left to cope with the loss of loved ones, while the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador are left facing extensive Health Care and Transportation and Works costs. As a result, the public has spoken and the pressure is on to find a solution.

Moosewatchnl.com aims to enhance public awareness of moose sightings in order to alert motorists to potential dangers. By alerting the motoring public of current moose sightings and their locations, moosewatchnl.com hopes to instill an increased sense of attention and caution in those traveling our highways, as a preventative measure to reduce moose accidents.

www.moosewatchnl.com gives you access to:

  • A Visual Map of Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Mapped Location Points for Recent Moose Sightings
  • Location Pins Showing the Time and Location of the Moose Sighting
  • A Twitter Timeline Showing Public Moose Sighting Reports. Sightings are reported using Twitter and the special tag line #moosewatchnl

How to Use the App

Once you are on the App, the timeline panel displays location and non-location moose sightings. Users can tap on the map to see location-based tweets of moose sightings; these tweets create a location pin of where the moose was sighted on Newfoundland and Labrador roads.

Moosewatchnl.com is a way for the Newfoundland and Labrador public to share their moose sightings with each other in an effort to raise awareness and prevent accidents. By providing an application dedicated to moose sightings and locations, moosewatchnl.com can be used to alert motorists to be safe as they travel our beautiful province.

* Moosewatchnl.com wants all users to practice safe cell phone use; if you are driving, carefully pull over to the side of the road or have a travel companion tweet your moose sighting and location. Do not use the App while you are driving. Moosewatchnl.com is not liable for any direct or indirect damages or loss; use the app at own risk.

How To Report A Moose Sighting

  • Open your Twitter App, or go to www.twitter.com
  • Begin a new tweet message and enter the moose sighting details. You must include #moosewatchnl in your message for the information to appear on the moosewatchnl.com App and iPhone App.
  • If you are currently at or near the moose’s location, you can allow a location-based tweet, so your sighting will be pinned on the map. iPhone users will click Location Icon to use their location and then click send with #moosewatchnl in your tweet message.
  • If you are not currently at or near the moose’s location but want to share a moose sighting, do not enable the location option on your Twitter message; doing so will plot a moose sighting on the map for whatever current location you are in- even your own home!
