Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: Protect the monarch butterfly
I'm writing to urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list monarch butterflies as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. We've lost 970 million monarch butterflies since their peak in the 1990s, and researchers have estimated that the North American monarch population stands a 72 percent chance of going extinct in the next 20 years if the current trend isn't reversed. It's time to list the monarch as threatened, granting the species critical protections under the Endangered Species Act.
