The California pipevine swallowtail butterfly is an extremely rare butterfly which almost became extinct at one point of time, but fortunately due to the efforts of Tim Wong, a biologist at California Academy of Sciences, the species is repopulated once more.

The biologist constructed a greenhouse with the perfect growing conditions for the butterflies in his own backyard it had all facilities such as sunlight, optimum temperatures and even occasional wind. The diet of these butterflies consists of one plant only the California pipevine, which isnt easy to grow on your own. But still Wong was able to get hold of the plant and grew it in his own garden successfully. After the greenhouse was complete, he brought 20 caterpillars there and allowed them to grow. Finally, after 3 years, his efforts have succeeded and the city is once again thriving with these butterflies.
