Save the Monarch
The Monarch butterfly population has plummeted due to habitat loss and changing climate patterns. That's why we're calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the monarch butterfly a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
The last monarch migration?
Over the past two decades, the monarch butterfly population has decreased by 68%.
This chronic decline isn't due to natural causes. The Washington Post called it "nothing short of a massacre."
How so? Pollution-driven climate change is part of the problem. But we're also allowing the destruction of the monarchs' habitat and food source through the rapid acceleration in use of Monsanto's toxic Roundup and Roundup Ready crops.
It just doesn't make sense
We're endangering the existence of one of our most beautiful creatures in order to serve the interests of one of the world's most powerful corporations, and for what?
So it can sell massive amounts of toxic herbicides? No part of that makes sense.
That's why we're calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the monarch butterfly a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
Together, we can save the monarch
If we succeed, we'll give the monarchs more than a fighting chance. When it comes to preventing extinction, the Endangered Species Act has a 99% success rate. But we have to act now.
Together, we will raise awareness of the monarchs' plight and take action that can save them.
In the wake of Environment California’s successful campaign to commit the Golden State to 100 percent clean electricity generation by 2045, PennEnvironment is launching a multi-year campaign to convince America to set similar goals to transition to clean energy.
