Bristlecone Institute for Ecological Research Charity Profile
The Bristlecone Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to long-term research on natural populations of plants and animals. We scale mountains and probe deserts to conduct repeated censuses of remote species. Our research allows us to track the growth and genetic diversity of species living in remnant natural habitats. The health of these species provides vital information on the health of the ecosystems in which they reside.
Bristlecone Institute for Ecological Research Volunteer Information
Since 1989, the Pika Project has welcomed over 60 volunteers to study these small but spunky “rock rabbits” that live in some of the most extreme environments on earth. Pikas are in decline in many parts of the world. Is it climate change? Join our researchers in studying this pressing question.
