The National Park Service has a slightly embarrassing problem. It manages some of the nation's most environmentally valuable land -- but it doesn't have a full account of plant and animal species that live in the parks. One remedy is the BioBlitz. A BioBlitz is a kind of whirlwind count of all the species in a specific place. The Park Service has been co-sponsoring BioBlitzes with National Geographic. The Environment Report sent Shawn Allee to their latest May 27, 2009.
