Zoo releases hundreds of rare butterflies near Oregon coast
On a sunny, windswept meadow atop Mount Hebo last week, Oregon Zoo conservationists released the last of the summer’s zoo-reared Oregon silverspot butterflies in an attempt to boost the declining population of this imperiled Northwest beauty. Listed as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, the Oregon silverspot was once common in coastal grasslands from northern California up into British Columbia, but has since vanished from all but five sites due to habitat loss and the disappearance of its host plant, the early blue violet.
