Threats, including climate change, pesticides, and loss of milkweed habitat are having a devastating impact on their populations and the migration phenomenon. Unless we act now to help the Monarch, this amazing animal could disappear in our lifetime. Read more at Environmental Defense Fund and Friends of the Earth websites.
