Plants reached the chain . . . and a butterfly landed.
The beautiful Kamehameha butterfly lives in Hawai'i and nowhere else. Named to honor the great king who united the Hawaiian Islands, the insect is one of only two butterfly species native to Hawai'i. After the Kamehameha butterfly became the state insect--thanks to a group of fifth-graders--people noticed that the butterfly was disappearing. So a team of dedicated professional and citizen scientists began working together to restore the butterfly's natural habitat and reintroduce butterflies in places where they were once found.
From the Sibert Medal-winning team that created Parrots Over Puerto Rico comes another nature adventure. Discover the captivating story of the Kamehameha butterfly and the people from all around Hawai'i who are helping it to survive.
