Have you ever wandered the streets, meadows, or forests and spotted a woodland caribou? I bet you would remember if you did. You could brag to your friends and colleagues about how time stood still as you watched this creature of elegance and grace pass through your line of sight. Everyone would ‘oooh’ and ‘awe’ as you retold your tale. But what about if you saw a Blue-grey Taildropper or a Karner Blue Butterfly? Would you value your experience with these endangered bugs? Would you even know they are in decline? Don’t worry I wouldn’t either.
