USFWS: Make the right decision and list monarch butterflies as an endangered species
We urge you to make the right decision and list monarch butterflies under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
The ESA has seen incredible success since it was established 45 years ago: 99 percent of the animals listed under the ESA haven't seen extinction. Meanwhile, monarch butterflies have seen alarming population declines -- since 1990, nearly 1 billion of these butterflies have vanished. And they continue to face threats to their survival. Monarch butterflies need the proven protection that the Endangered Species Act can provide.
