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

“Lynx: Shadows of the Forest” showcases the Canada lynx reintroduction in Colorado. Along with the historical perspective, the short film highlights ongoing work to provide habitat where lynx and their primary food source, the snowshoe hare, can thrive, and the challenging work of monitoring lynx and hare populations. Produced by Sean Ender of Peak to Creek Films, the film features Scott Wait, Jake Ivan, Kevin Duda, Kirsten Terkildsen, Brad Weinmeister, and Doug Clark.
