Wildlife Relocation

Jessica from California

Dear Masibuwah,
        Do you know where all of the butterflies have gone?  I live in Baja, California and every summer I play outside in my yard with my friends and we stop when we see a butterflies because we think they are so beautiful.  I also sit in the garden my mom helps me make and watch the butterflies flutter from flower to flower.  This summer has been very different, though.
        It is almost half way through my summer break from school and I have not seen any butterflies yet.  My friends and I have tried going on small walks and sitting in my garden to try to find them, but we have not found one.  Is my garden not good enough for them anymore or have we all scared them away by staring at them as they fly by?  Please help me figure out where I can find them.
