along with human communities in sustainable, functioning ecosystems.
An Early Sentinel of Climate Change - The Pika
Watch now and learn about Craighead Institute's pika research. Together with our partners, our wildlife biologists are actively researching and seeking out best practices to protect the habitat of the American pika in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem including areas not far from your home!
Are you hiking in pika territory this summer?
Become a citizen-scientist today and assist in work on climate change by monitoring pika locations.
Visualize Sustainable Land Use
The Craighead Institute created tools that provide a simple way to visualize the impact of subdivision or energy development on wildlife. They can be used to evaluate existing conditions or predict the impacts of any future development scenario. We are using these tools in the Madison Valley.
