SAVE THE MONARCHS

A 90% percent decline rate in the last 10 years for this lovely and necessary creature, now means that a recovery plan has to implemented and followed through on; or they will die out within the next 3 year. Barring the usual diatribe about what all we have done wrong for the last 60 years; let move on to what has to be done right here and now. We must plant milkweek this spring, and lots of it, and the right kind; not the tropical version. We must let it grow side by side with our goldenrod and other butterfly food flowers. Long Beach Island and the marshes surrounding it have been a migration stop over for Monarchs for thousands of years and we must build up the food sources for them once again. They are literally starving to death in the sky and falling dead looking for food. Here are several websites that have information.

fws.gov/savethemonarch - to get it listed as endangered.

saveourmonarchs.org - for milkweed seeds, they ask for a donation but not required

livemonarch.com - for milkweed seeds, the same as above.
