Due to the pika's sensitivity to warming temperatures, monitoring the persistence of pika at sites around Yellowstone National Park will help us better understand the effects of climate change on this species. Here in Yellowstone, we have numerous pika sites that are accessible from nearby roadways, and this seminar will help contribute data from these locations to the Yellowstone Citizen Science Initiative. Citizen science is a great opportunity to learn while assisting the park with research objectives.
