The Monarch butterfly is endangered. Monarch population is down an alarming 80% since 1992. Much of the decline can be attributed to the Milkweed population, which is also down 80% since 1992, most likely due to the extensive use of herbicides and pesticides on agricultural crops. Milkweed is the only sustenance for the Monarch’s caterpillar. SaveOurMonarchs.org is helping to rebuild the habitat for the Monarch.
