Miami Blue Butterfly: Is It Too Late?

It looks like the federal government is going to put an emergency action plan together for the rare Miami Blue butterfly.  Read the article here on the Palm Beach Post blog to get the full scoop.

I'm glad that some much needed protection is finally coming through for this species but I wonder if we waited too long.  From what I know the population is very sparse and restricted to select islands in the Florida Keys.  I hope that this measure isn't coming too late.
