The Alpine Marmot Project

Welcome to the Alpine Marmot Project

Participate in Marmothon!

Thanks to our research, we have demonstrated over the past twenty years the number of pups in the litters has diminished. This decline is linked to climate change (in particular the reduction of snow coverage), but why?

In order to answer this question and to develop measures of adaptive protection, we need to equip our study site at the Grand Sassière with a meteorological station.

If you also don’t want the marmots to end up in a museum, help us install this station by participating in the Marmothon. CLICK HERE!
