This photo of a rare white moose was taken Sunday by Jerome House of Port au Port West.

This white moose was spotted in Port au Port West over the weekend.

In 2002, the province’s Tourism, Culture and Recreation Department provided special protection for a rare and interesting white moose that resides in Moose Management Area 43 on the Port au Port Peninsula.

Sightings of this particular moose are common and local residents have assumed a stewardship responsibility towards the unique animal.

Moose hunting licences in that management area are not valid to shoot moose that are predominately white in colour.

Organizations: Culture and Recreation Department

Geographic location: Port au Port West, Moose Management Area
