Diana Tomback Addresses Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation Meeting.

A single Clark’s nutcracker can cache almost 100,000 seeds in a single season, far more than it will usually need to feed on later. The bird does so as something of an insurance policy, in case thieving squirrels or other animals steal too many, or other food sources are in short supply that year.

What doesn’t get eaten, or stolen, often grows.

But whitebark pines face deadly threats on so many fronts that the species is, according to University of Colorado Denver researcher Diana Tomback, a candidate for the U.S. endangered species list. It's already on Canada’s version.
