Mount Charleston blue butterfly Recovery Plan

Recovery of the Mount Charleston blue butterfly will occur when threats are sufficiently reduced or conditions improve to permit the population to increase based on the criteria listed in the recovery plan. Threats to the butterfly include the loss and degradation of habitat due to fire, fire suppression, fuels reduction projects, and recreation development projects, and extreme precipitation and drought caused by climate change climate change
