Monarch Butterfly Info:
- Monarch butterflies are endangered. While the butterflies pollinate many flower species during their nectar foraging, Monarch caterpillars only eat Milkweed and in the United States 860 million Milkweed stems have been lost in the last decade. During this same time, the population of migratory Monarch butterflies has declined by 80% according to the US Geological Survey. Estimates are that as many as 1.8 billion more stems of Milkweed are needed to restore the Monarch butterflies to healthy populations.
- Grow Milkweed in your garden to help save the habitat that Monarch caterpillars need in order for this species survive.
