The Mt. Charleston blue butterfly is in danger of going extinct but the Department of The Interior says the species won't be listed as endangered, to receive federal protection. The butterfly is unique to Las Vegas and has seen its habitat dwindle due to drought and plant loss. The insect will not be designated as a "candidate" for protection. We'll talk with an ecologist and a representative from the fish and wildlife center about the Mt. Charleston blue butterfly.
