Protect American Pika from Total Extinction

Target: Kamala Harris, California Senator

Goal: Protect remaining American pika and other wildlife from climate change.

The endangered American pika is officially extinct in California’s northern Sierra Nevada mountains, and climate change has been branded the culprit by a team of researchers. According to the team’s lead author Joseph Stewart, this extinction “echoes prehistoric range collapses that happened when temperatures increased after the last ice age.”

While pikas can still be found in the areas surrounding the mountains, the fact that they have been wiped out from their main habitat is a major red flag. These small rodent-like mammals are just one of many species in need of protection from the nasty effects of climate change, wolverines, walruses, and salmon among them. Worse, climate change deniers are still doing their best to block any further study or prevention of the crisis by fighting scientists every step of the way.

We must fight harder than ever against climate change. The pika is just one casualty of many, but the findings have proven this to be one of the biggest indicators that the planet is in trouble. Sign this petition to help save the American pika and fight climate change.


Dear Senator Harris,

Recent scientific studies have identified climate change as the reason for the American pika’s extinction from the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The small rodent-like mammal was plentiful there for many years, and can still be found just outside the area, but the complete disappearance of a species from one of its major habitats has been compared to the prehistoric ice age’s effect on the dinosaurs.

Climate change is very real, but for every effort to spread awareness and prevent it, the climate change deniers continue to fight back and insist the problem is not real. The loss of the pika is just one of many red flags indicating the planet’s distress.

Please aid and support the fight against climate change and protect the remaining pikas from extinction. The fate of all wildlife depends on it.
