Unfortunately, the plight of the Monarch Butterfly seems like a present day Ivory-billed Woodpecker or Passenger Pigeon scenario. I had no idea the population of Monarchs has declined so precipitously! Yet another reason to abhor Monsanto.

Cut and paste this link for more info:

Or look here:

The monarch needs federal protection because the threats it faces are so large in scale that it has declined by 90 percent from the 20-year average since the mid-1990s. If monarchs were people, that would be like losing every living person in the United States except those in Florida and Ohio.
 
Fascinating. Thanks so much for sharing.
