Their numbers are down 80% of what they were in 1992. And the Milkweed plant population, which is indispensable to the Monarch, is also down 80%
Milkweed plants are the only source of food for the monarch caterpillar. But these plants are rapidly disappearing, due to land development and the widespread spraying of weed killer on the fields where they live.
We want to promote the recovery of the Milkweed popular, now. One milkweed at a time. The SaveOurMonarchs Foundation is solely dedicated to saving the monarch butterfly by planting more milkweed. Others may educate. We plant. Please join us in helping save the monarch butterfly!
