Crazy Grants : July 3rd

Accelerating the Dispersal and Impact of the Predatory beetle Laricobius nigrinus $60,000
This grant is to populate more of one insect to attack another. Haven't we heard all sorts of horror stories of man meddling by pitting one species against the other and things go horribly wrong? Cane toads? Chinese lady bugs?
Desert Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Lion Monitoring and Management $250,000
More man meddling with nature. This involves collaring and tracking sheep and mountain lions to make sure not too many sheep are eaten.

Today's Total $310,000
