In the face of a climate crisis, the Colorado Pika Project  is engaging community scientists to conserve the American pika and safeguard the health of alpine ecosystems in Colorado.

The Colorado Pika Project is a research project implemented by community scientists across Colorado. Through long-term monitoring of pika populations, we are not only providing useful data to researchers and land managers, but we are doing so in a way that educates and engages Coloradans in conservation and the local impacts of climate change.
