Man Single Handedly Repopulates The Rare Butterfly Species In His Own Backyard

This is a really amazing post from incredible snaps, here you are going to see the photographs of the rare species butterfly. These butterflies are repopulated by the single man in his own backyard. The California pipevine swallowtail butterfly was one of the species close to extinction. Now, we must thank the California Academy of Sciences aquatic biologist, Tim Wong, to repopulate the butterfly species again. The biologist built a greenhouse especially for the butterflies and created a perfect condition for the butterflies such as sunlight, temperature fluctuations, and an occasional nice breeze He also learned that the butterflies feed on one plant  and  the California pipevine, which was pretty hard to track down. After a while, Wong found the plant in a botanical garden, which allowed him to take a few clippings of the plant. Once his butterfly paradise was built, Wong transported 20 caterpillars to it and let them grow. Now, around 3 years later, his butterfly home is thriving, and he’s not stopping yet! Here the amazing pictures check out it.
