The Monarch, Saving our Most Beloved Butterfly

 

Common milkweed is the one critical factor in the survival of our most beloved butterfly.  The Monarch generally lays one egg per plant when milkweed is plentiful, and it is the only food the young larvae eats as it becomes a caterpillar.

Unfortunately, much of the milkweed has disappeared throughout the U.S. due to many factors, and this in turn has affected the 2800 mile migration every fall from Canada to Central Mexico.

[Tweet “Kylee Baumle is passionate about saving the #monarchbutterfly”]. Her new book, The Monarch, Saving our Most-Loved Butterfly is easy-to-read and comprehensive.  It covers everything you’d want to know about the condition of our environment and how it affects many of our pollinators.   In our interview Kylee tells us about her research and what we can do to help save the monarch.
