Schaus' swallowtail butterfly

Map of Florida

The Schaus' swallowtail butterfly is native to the hardwood forests found in Florida. As you can see from the map, this is quite a small area.
Scientists in Florida are now doing as much as they can to increase the number of Schaus' swallowtails in the wild. They are trying to encourage people to plant the right sort of tree so that swallowtails, bred in the laboratory, can be released into the wild. Strangely it seems that golf courses have been found to be about the best butterfly habitats in Florida!
