"Drugs, prostitution threaten wildlife refuges" put an attention-grabbing headline on an article related to yesterday's post.

From the CNN article:

A decrease in law enforcement has left the refuges vulnerable to criminal activity, including prostitution, torched cars and illegal immigrant camps along the Potomac River in suburban Washington, methamphetamine labs in Nevada and pot growing operations in Washington state, Hirsche said.

All national and state parks, preserves, and refuges are facing these problems. I've had some recent opportunities to discuss these and other matters at length with a rangers and other agents charged with maintaining these public areas. The public needs to demand more attention and funding be dedicated to these "public commons" before they become a victim of abject governmental neglect.
