Danish Nature Park to Introduce Moose Population by 2026

A majority in the board of the Gribskov Nature National Park has voted to introduce moose into the park. This means that in a few years, it will be possible to experience these majestic animals in North Zealand, specifically in the upcoming nature national park. According to Søren Bo Oldenburg, the forest ranger in the Danish Nature Agency, the moose will be reintroduced earliest in 2026, and initially, only a few will be introduced. Oldenburg describes the moose as the “Giraffe of the North” and emphasizes its unique abilities to reach places where other animals cannot. This makes the moose a valuable helper for nature, while also becoming an exciting attraction for visitors who may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it in the vast natural area that will be its new home.

The work to establish the Gribskov Nature National Park will begin as early as September. Gribskov is the only one of the new nature national parks where there is the possibility of introducing moose, provided there is local support for it. The introduced moose will be placed in a large enclosure where it is also planned to include other animal species such as red deer, roe deer, and fallow deer. Moose are not new to Denmark; already in 2015, five moose calves were introduced in the Lille Vildmose in North Jutland. These moose have since multiplied, and the population now counts over 20 animals.
