Butterflies and Bombs

Catchy title, isn't it? I came across this podcast about a long-term project to save the Saint Francis' satyr (Neonympha mitchellii francisci), a butterfly that is only found at the the U.S. military base, Fort Bragg. It is found in and around a live fire artillery range. The evolution of the researcher's view on how to protect an insect that lives in the same place that the U.S. special forces are trained is very interesting.
