Four federally endangered butterflies, on the verge of extinction, inhabit diverse ecosystems in South Florida. However, these four butterfly species have subspecies that live and thrive on islands in the Caribbean. Let’s take a wildlife tour from Little Havana (Miami) to Havana (Cuba) to Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) to Guánica (Puerto Rico) and explore their tropical dry forest ecosystems (el bosque seco tropical). Why? Because understanding how these butterfly species persist in the Caribbean can provide solutions for better management of the four federally endangered butterflies in South Florida.
