Questions:

1) How many of of 33 species might a participant reasonably expect to see in the GGNRA? (several species are no longer found in GGNRA, are out of bounds, underwater, or to the untrained eye, indistinquishable from closely related species.)
2) If I am with a pet when I see the species, does the sighting still count? (Rules state: Leave pets at home.)
3) How does planting more lupine bring increase the Mission Blue butterfly population? (There already are acres of Mission-blue-less lupine.) Would my time be better spent trying to discover other factors that might contribute to the Mission Blue's well-being?
4) Is the BIG YEAR preparation for the Endangered Species Act to be used as a legal tool to ban recreation from parks, even when there is no evidence that recreation is harmful? Will picnics still be allowed? Noisey active children?
5) Aren't there National Parks which should be given higher priority, since they have MORE endangered species than the GGNRA (even if the parks are on islands)?
