5. A tropical species, Purple Crow Butterfly prefers warm to hot weather. When the temperature drops to 4℃ or lower, it freezes to death. As northeastern monsoon winds blow, the purple crow butterflies around Taiwan move to the south to find a warm valley to spend the winter. When in the spring it becomes warm again, the butterflies go back to the north following the spring’s footsteps, looking for places to breed. To collect data of the butterfly’s migration, our volunteers write down numbers on the butterflies’ wings before setting them free in the wild. Now visitors have a chance to do this, too, and learn more about the species’ ecology.
