Atala butterflies are a south Florida endemic species that were at one point presumed extinct, but were brought back from the bink of extinction by the wide-scale replanting of it's host plant, coontie, and other cycads that had become popular in landscaping. In 1979 Roger Hammer re-discovered a small population of the species on Virginia Key. He and many others eventually distributed them to other natural areas and gardens where there were coontie and cycads. Today, the species can be found living far outside of it's natural range in Florida, due to the loving care of conservationists and concious gardeners.
