The remarkable migration of monarch butterflies depends on milkweeds and nectar sources on their breeding grounds and undisturbed forest on their overwintering grounds, but changes in the landscape are leading to a long-term decline in their abundance. Discover the number of efforts are underway to try to counter the downward trend of this iconic species.
