Matsalu Moose - Strangers in Bird Paradise

52’ / HD 

Matsalu National Park at the Baltic Sea is known for being one of Europe’s most important stopover places for migrating birds. However, few know that an exceptionally large Moose colony also lives here. For most of the year, these magnificent creatures roam the open marshes in great masses. The flooded wetlands lure the moose with ideal conditions: Rich food, good visibility and no human hunters. Our story about Moose starts at the time when the yearlings are chased away from their mother before she gives birth to the next calf. Their first year of independency is full of new experiences, dramatic or humorous encounters, even conflicts, and finally integration in the world of the adult moose society. The documentary shows the moose life at this very special place through the eyes of two yearlings.
