Watch for Wildlife program expanding to New Brunswick

A program aimed at preventing collisions between vehicles and wildlife is expanding to New Brunswick this summer. 

The Sierra Club Canada Foundation's Watch for Wildlife program, which has been running for two years in Nova Scotia, aims to educate drivers on how to prevent accidents with animals and what to do if it happens. 

A news release from the foundation says moose are the main concern of many New Brunswickers when it comes to sharing the road with wildlife. 

At least 400 moose-vehicle accidents happen every year in New Brunswick. 

The release says the program hopes to reduce this number by spreading awareness and educating residents about how to prevent these kind of collisions. 

The official launch will take place this weekend in Fredericton.
