Uruma City identifies its own namesake butterfly

Date Posted: 2010-03-18

The chrysalis, a butterfly baby, is now Uruma City’s own butterfly. Specifically, the baby Ougomadara butterfly is Uruma City’s own, to the delight of the Uruma City Butterfly Loving Society.

Uruma City is staging events for the butterfly, and touting its breeding, too. Society chairman Hiroshi Matayoshi says “we have seen paradise when we were children, and there were a lot of butterflies flying into our country. Now they’re gone because the butterfly is weak against nature, so we see how nature and the environment are changing.” Matayoshi says butterflies “can’t live in a bad environment, so if we can make the butterfly fly again in our city, it means that the natural environment in Uruma City has become clean and rich.”

The Society’s tenth anniversary was last year, and now it is holding a butterfly festival. They made a big dorm for butterflies outside Uruma City Offices in a tent, allowing 1,808 butterflies to fly free within the tent. Matayoshi says the event was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

He says this Ougomadara butterfly has particularly big wings, flies slowly, and has babies with a gold shiny color.” Matayoshi says it is hard to find the butterfly these days because it loves clean nature. Uruma City Mayor Toshio Shimabukuro says “we are so happy to be certified in the Guinness Book, so now we must protect the butterflies and create a more clean nature together, so butterflies can return to our city by themselves.
