Butterfly Conservation and Management Course


Grow, Shelly, Endangered Species Update


Twenty-two butterfly species are federally listed as endangered or threatened in the United States. There are also candidates for federal listing and others that have been identified as species of state concern in their native ranges. Most of the habitat upon which these species depend is severely fragmented and/or degraded, and the need for active conservation efforts is great. "Techniques for Butterfly Conservation and Management" is a three-day workshop designed to increase the number of skilled professionals and volunteers available to support butterfly recovery. The American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA) approved course is appropriate for government wildlife biologists; zoo, aquarium, and nature center personnel; environmental educators; volunteers; and others interested in butterfly conservation.

In order to address the needs of people both new and experienced in butterfly conservation, course topics include: Butterfly Diversity and Evolution; Ecology and Behavior; Captive Propagation Basics; Host Plant Care; Genetic Management; Case Studies in Butterfly Conservation; Field and Lab Techniques; Introduction to Recovery Planning; Permitting 101; Habitat Restoration; Exhibitry; Establishing Population Monitoring Networks; Butterfly Conservation Networks; and Integrating Butterflies into Educational and Conservation Programs.

The course will be offered April 28-30, 2005, at the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity in Gainesville, Florida. Information on the course can be found at http://www.
