Scientists seek public's help for state butterfly

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Scientists in Hawaii are seeking the public's help in documenting locations where the state butterfly can be found.

University of Hawaii professor Dan Rubinoff tells KHON-TV that the Kamehameha butterfly is not in a lot of locations where it used to be.

Rubinoff says scientist believe the butterfly population is not doing as well as it should be.

Rubinoff and others are hoping the public will get involved in a scientific study called the Pulelehua Project. It's a collaboration between researchers and the public.

Researchers are asking that people who see the butterfly, caterpillar, egg or chrysalis submit any photos and observations to the project website.
