Maine Wildlife Tracking & Adventure Packages

Tracking Maine Wildlife (1)
Maine is well known for its wildlife. Our state has one of the largest moose and black bear populations in the “Lower 48”. Guest of the Lodge at Moosehead Lake that are interested in Maine wildlife watching can get a complete list of all the animals you can find in the North woods of Maine. Animal track cards are also available, making it easier for the keen eye to spot 58 species of mammals occupying this natural habitat which is all around you.

While Maine has an abundance of wildlife, several species of mammals have either gone extinct or have been AnimalTracksextirpated from the state. These include the sea mink, caribou, eastern cougar, and wolf. Currently, there are several species of mammals that are in danger of extinction. The New England cottontail is listed as state endangered and now numbers less than 300 animals in Maine. The northern bog lemming only occurs in a few sites in Maine and is state listed as threatened. Although not currently listed as endangered, the little brown bat has lost most of its population due to white-nosed syndrome, a fungal disease that mainly affects bats that hibernate together. It is expected that the little brown bat, once Maine’s most common bat, may become extirpated from the Northeast in less than 15 years.

Trekking in Maine’s North woods or taking a trip with a seasoned guide can result in lots of wildlife sightings. How many can you find during your stay at our Maine bed and breakfast resort?
