There is a lot more to this than could be covered in the excellent article. For example, the 40 plus acres of land that was to be Mira Mrsa's main communnity park is now a fenced San Diego Fairy Shrimp preserve. It lies a mere 1/2 mile from the Salk School site. Aslo, many hundreds of acres of MCAS Miramar are set aside for this species. Any reasonable person just has to wonder how many tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer money environmentalists are willing to spend to preserve a species that they probably couldn't kill if they tried. Of course you also have to wonder how many of their own dollars they would be willing to spend. I'll bet that number is a lot smaller.
