Summary

In science news around the world, Isle Royale's two remaining wolves are not enough to control its rapidly increasing populations of moose, scientists and policymakers in the Netherlands debate a proposed new funding allocation system that would do away with grant proposals, NASA scientists spot a new rift in a Greenland glacier, the University of California and its partners fire another salvo in the battle over a CRISPR patent, global donors pledge $812 million to ramp up efforts to combat neglected tropical diseases, a member of Congress and a conservation group file the first of what will likely be many lawsuits aimed at hampering construction of the so-called border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and more. Also, Science talks with a member of the U.S. National Commission on Forensic Science about the Department of Justice's decision last week not to renew its charter. And, buried deep in the mud of a former log storage pond, scientists find the first live specimens of the mysterious giant shipworm.
