Monarchs are pollinators and they need the same habitats (native milkweed and other nectar flowers) as many other pollinators, and even other wildlife. Therefore, if monarchs are in trouble because they don’t have enough habitat, then many of our other pollinators and wildlife that share their habitat are in trouble as well.


Monarchs have a unique migration that inspires interest in the natural world across the entire continent. The fact that these amazing little creatures, travel for thousands of miles to embark on an incredible journey is a phenomenon that deserves protection for its own sake.
