The species most dependent on whitebark pine for survival is the Clark’s
Nutcracker. The whitebark pine and Clark’s Nutcracker have a remarkable relationship and the
two species have co-evolved over thousands of years. Now that the whitebark pine is proposed
to be listed under the Endangered Species Act, we figured it was a good opportunity to share
with you some of what I find most interesting about these two interconnected species.
