COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary hosted its annual butterfly count this morning.

It is not all for fun; the information is gathered in the name of science.

Researchers say a change in the butterfly population could point out an issue in our ecosystem.

Experts and amateurs toured the grounds to see what they could find.

One volunteer says it is the perfect excuse to get out of the house and help the environment.
