Nevada Biologists Appreciated For Saving Pupfish

A group of Nevada biologists are being honored for their efforts to try and save the Devil's Hole Pupfish. The US Fish and Wildlife Service honored Lee Simons, Kevin Guadalupe and Brandon Senger with the 2013 Recovery Champions award. The team was put together more than a year ago when the Pupfish numbers dwindled down to 35. The group has since hatched 30 new fish a specially-designed facility.
