Butterflies Fly Higher from Climate Change & Development

GreenTracker| Butterflies are another species reeling from the one|two punch of climate change and land development.

“Butterflies are not only charismatic to the public, but also widely used as indicators of the health of the environment worldwide,” said Shapiro, a professor of evolution and ecology. “We found many lowland species are being hit hard by the combination of warmer temperatures and habitat loss.”

Simply stated, butterflies are flying skyward to higher elevations, in search of friendlier Green Beings habitats. As for the highest-elevation betterflies, Shapiro says, “There is nowhere to go except heaven.” via Science Daily
