Pika are very sensitive to climate change and have become harder to find within the Rocky Mountain range. As lower altitudes have warmed the Pika habitat range has shrunk.

My understanding is that Pika are very sensitive to climate change and have become harder to find. As lower altitudes have warmed the Pika habitat range has shrunk.
