For years the monarch butterfly population has been declining due to habitat destruction.  The monarch butterfly feeds mostly on m
ilkweed (here in Hawaii we have a variety called Crown of Thorn), which are getting destroyed.  The butterfly population has fallen sharply by 960 million in ten years.  The National Fish and Wildlife has pledged 1.2 million into restoring the monarch butterfly population. Money will go into education and habitat restoration.
