    Poweshiek Skipperling; Recovery Tales of a Tiny Butterfly - Dec 10, 2020

    Even more threatened than the giant panda, the Poweshiek skipperling has only been observed in seven Canadian locations within the last five years, all of which are located in the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Tall Grass Prairie Natural Area in southeastern Manitoba. In the United States, populations only appear on a handful of sites in Michigan, and their status in Wisconsin is uncertain. Meet the conservation staff from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Assiniboine Park Zoo and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service who lead the international recovery efforts of the Poweshiek skipperling, and discover how their collaboration is helping improve populations in North America.
