Let's Save the Monarch Butterfly

You may not know that this exquisite Monarch butterfly is now counted among the creatures threatened with extinction.  National Wildlife reports that “every year millions of monarch butterflies migrate south, riding air currents for up to 3,000 miles from the Northern United States and Southern Canada to Central Mexico.  But late last August thousands of monarchs crossing the Midwest on their epic journey ran into a cloud of the insecticide ’permethrin’ and perished.”
