One of the rarest beetles in the world lives right here in Oregon. Its home is just a few patches of sand, each no more than a few hundred yards long. What do they need to survive? Apparently, they need bulldozers. Dune-clearing intended for the threatened snowy plover seems to be helping this rare tiger beetle hold on to survival.
