Greenpeace USA had an amazing idea. They would set up a camera at Glacier National Park to capture images of the beautiful terrain. The result would be an amazing time-lapse video showing why interference from government agencies can be detrimental to Mother Nature’s wonder. As it turns out, one of Mother Nature’s creatures had a different idea.
