Moving the Worms

A whole mess of giant Australian earthworms have to be moved to make way for Progress. It’s tricky work–it’s taken two months, and they’ve moved 600 earthworms in that time, but with a 20% mortality rate. They may be big, but they’re fragile. Sometimes workers would spend two hours brushing the dirt away before they could move them.
