Of the Klamath Mountains
While mammals are exceptional, there are few unique to the Klamath Mountains. Most of these charismatic critters have the ability to travel long distances over land, through the air, or up rivers and thus, along with birds, natural histories are often shared with other mountain ranges in the West and North America. For these reasons, mammal conservation issues are often broader than a single region including far away wintering habitats for bats or narrow forested migration corridors that connect the Klamath Mountains to other regions such as the Cascades Range. Unique stories also emerge within the Klamath Mountains and others remain untold. What follows are some highlights of the common and the rare at a crossroads of amazing mammalian habitats.
