Let's talk about Monarch Butterflies.
Monarch Butterflies are now an endangered species. According to UrbanBird.org, over the last 20 years, monarch populations have fallen by more than 80 percent.
Habitat destruction: Urban development and land use changes have replaced vital habitat and food resources Monarchs need to survive.
Pesticide use: Pesticides and the use of chemicals in agriculture are disruptive and often fatal for pollinators, including the delicate Monarch Butterfly.
Climate change: Extreme weather patterns have disrupted migration patterns.
