Whenever I see this butterfly it lifts my heart. That it's numbers are a fraction of what I remember in my lifetime makes me sad. I hope we have the sense to do something about this before it's too late.
This beautiful migrating butterfly is declining rapidly due to Monsanto, because of its herbicide Roundup and the GMO genetically modified crops they manufacture so they can sell even more herbicide. The herbicide has killed most of the milkweed the butterflies lay their eggs on, just 'collateral damage' for Monsanto's long term profits.
