Wisconsin holds the world’s largest populations of the federally endangered Karner blue butterfly, a tiny species the size of a postage stamp that once was found from Minnesota to the Atlantic coast. Outside of Wisconsin, small populations remain in only a handful of states.
Monitoring and management of these populations is crucial to preserving the species. Chelsea Weinzinger, Karner Recovery Coordinator for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, will share the story of the Karner’s decline, its biology, the increasingly rare habitat required to support it, why it is a bellwether for dozens of other threatened species, and how the Department is working toward recovery.
