An emergency declaration by the governor at the beginning of the year freed up millions of dollars for extermination efforts. As a result, tribes and other organizations managed to kill nearly 180,000 of these aggressive, adaptable, destructive crustaceans by September — but is that enough? For his story, Crowe speaks to scientific experts and visits a Lummi Nation site that is ground zero in the fight to control this crab. Photo by Michael Crowe / Sierra
