Who We Are

The Colorado Pika Project (CPP) is a collaborative research project implemented by community scientists across Colorado and managed by Denver Zoo and Rocky Mountain Wild. Through long-term monitoring, the FRPP investigates the potential impacts of climate change on the American pika (Ochotona princeps) and Colorado’s alpine ecosystems. We provide critical data to researchers and land managers, and do so in a way that educates and engages Coloradans in conservation and the local impacts of climate change.
