The “village” would bisect an important wildlife movement corridor connecting the Weminuche and San Juan Wilderness areas, and disrupt critical daily and seasonal movement patterns for lynx, black bear, elk, and other species.

Squirrels and chipmunks eavesdrop on birds, sometimes adding their own thoughts. In Africa, vervet monkeys recognize predator alarm calls by superb starlings.
