As far as I know the lab is on the non-profit side, has been operating with
outside donations to pay the preparator, some are volunteers.

I think Dinamation got too big too fast, opening the facility in Grants NM
was the straw that broke the Camarasaurus' back.  I have heard the some
individuals have helped out the lab with expenses.  I too would like to help
out.  I will dig a little deeper to find out if there is anything we can do.
I do know a few of the people involved with them.
