HOT SPRINGS RESORT
You may see wildlife from your room at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort. Several wildlife species native to Chaffee County have seen major population declines over the past 20 years. CPW biologists indicate that habitat loss from development, increasing recreation pressure, and possibly drought and climate change are working in combination to cause the declines. Wildlife plays a critical role in the health of our mountain ecosystem, as well as contributing to the resiliency of our economy. How can you help curb these declines?
- Keep your four-legged friends on a leash. The White-tailed Ptarmigan population is threatened by various recreation impacts, which includes dogs killing young birds.
- Give wildlife space, do not harass, feed or approach them. Human disturbance has been shown to reduce elk calf survival and cause stress in other wildlife species.
- Travel on durable surfaces. The Boreal Toad is in severe decline in part due to trampling of their habitat and the collection of tadpoles/toads.
