American pika Not Threatened
Author: Reed Hopper
Both state and federal authorities have determined the American pika is not threatened by global warming at this time. According to the U.S. Fish and Widllife Service:
"Although the American pika is potentially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change in portions of its range, the best available scientific information indicates that pikas will be able to survive despite higher temperatures. Pikas will have enough suitable high elevation habitat to prevent them from becoming threatened or endangered."
