The Miami Blue Butterfly is the size of a thumb nail and, being so small makes it especially vulnerable to everything, the weather, hurricanes are a real problem, people and predators. Their wings are a metallic blue color and females are bigger than the males. There are reportedly less than 100 Miami Blues left, thanks in great part to the loss of their habitat and the plants on which their survival depends. We are destroying their home. Miami Blues were thought to be extinct at the end of the 20th century but further populations popped up. Sadly by 2012, just one population remained with 34 butterflies counted as left. The University of Florida is now working to recover this last small group of individuals and lay plans hopefully for a recovery of the species itself.
