The iconic moose, driver of hunting and tourism economies in New Hampshire's North Country, is in decline due to a tiny tick that infests them by the tens of thousands. UNH professor Pete Pekins leads a team of undergraduate and graduate students as they track radio-collared moose and their calves to chart their survival.
