There’s no better way to honor our Earth than by protecting the wild creatures that call it home, especially species like beautiful—and struggling—monarch butterflies.
Monarch populations have plummeted almost 90% in the past two decades. How? Habitat loss. These magnificent butterflies have lost MILLIONS of acres of prairie grassland habitat where milkweed plants grow. Monarch caterpillars feed on milkweed as host plants, and scientists warn the species won’t bounce back without restored habitat.
