Heading Out On A BioBlitz

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.
