Here’s How You Can Help Bring Monarch Butterflies (and Honey Bees) Back from the Brink of Extinction

Story at-a-glance -

  • The monarch butterfly is about to go extinct, as genetically engineered crops and agricultural chemicals have largely eliminated the perennial milkweed, which is the monarch’s sole food and breeding source
  • To help you grow a habitat for monarchs, I will be sending out a free packet of milkweed seeds with every domestic order from now until the seeds run out.
  • Action item: sign the petition asking EPA, USDA, and President Obama to protect the monarchs’ breeding habitat by stopping approval of glyphosate-resistant genetically engineered crops
  • More than half of garden plants attractive to bees sold at Lowe’s are pre-treated with pesticides that could be lethal to bees. Please sign the letter asking these companies to stop selling these toxic plants
  • To avoid harming bees and other helpful pollinators that visit your garden, swap out toxic pesticide and lawn chemicals for organic weed and pest control alternatives
