INS007-00311

A federally endangered poweshiek skipperling (Oarisma poweshiek) at the Minnesota Zoo. There are only five adults in captivity, all at this zoo. There are just a few hundred left in the wild. Reason for its decline is still a mystery, but the catastrophic loss of prairie habitat due to farming/ethanol production are detrimental.
