Moose populations are stable across the world, and in some regions they are actually artificially inflated for the purposes of hunting. However, researchers predict that as climate change warms the Northern Hemisphere, moose will lose parts of their habitat since they can only live in very cold areas. Similarly, human activity that causes habitat loss and fragmentation has a detrimental effect on the global moose population, and in combination with climate change could pose devastating for moose numbers.

Moose are found in the extreme northern regions of the world, all across the northern tier of the United States, in Canada, and all across Alaska. They also live in northern Europe and Asia, near the Baltic Sea, and in Siberia.
