Hi Hailey! Most interesting topic for a mission! However, user-created missions on Project Noah must remain local as per instructions on our mission creation page (max. 300 miles radius). Global mission are reserved for organizations or by prior approval of Project Noah. Please kindly edit your mission and specify the location in the text and title (e.g., Plant Pathology - North West USA). Many thanks in advance.

Fascinating stuff. Alternative to 'opened' they may have been parasitised. Those holes look like external attacks to me.
