Mammals Research Section

When the section was established in 1961, researchers set a proud tradition of conducting quality research to provide reliable and current information for wildlife management and conservation that we continue to this day. Our research focuses on Colorado’s wild mammals and their habitats in a constantly changing and increasingly human-dominated landscape. This research helps to ensure that functional ecosystems continue to exist to benefit current and future citizens of Colorado and the nation.

 Featured Project

Colorado Parks and Wildlife's researchers study mammal, bird, fish and plant populations with the goals of garnering new knowledge and improving wildlife management and conservation for generations to come. In this video we provide a glimpse into the life of a research project focused on moose. We explore the questions researchers ask, the methods they use to address those questions and how the answers will benefit the people and wildlife of Colorado.
