The Kamehameha butterfly was once found on all the main Hawaiian Islands. But researchers say the insect, which is found only in the state of Hawaii, is now on the decline. HPR’s Molly Solomon has more.

The University of Hawaii has set up a website called the Pulelehua Project to track sightings of the Kamehameha butterfly. Find out more about the project or submit your own sightings by clicking here.
