Funds from the ESLIP grant are used for planting wild lupine and wildflowers that produce nectar for adult Karner blues; restoring oak savanna and pine barrens habitat to promote establishment of viable metapopulations of butterflies; and creating dispersal corridors to connect isolated local populations.
These habitat changes extirpated many rare and unique taxa, including the Karner blue butterfly, which requires oak savanna habitat with extensive patches of wild lupine (Lupinus perennis).
Wild lupine (Lupinus perennis), the butterfly's larval host plant, grew naturally in openings throughout this region but was eliminated by certain agricultural and forestry activities, including suppression of the natural wildfires that maintained open habitats.
