Tell the FWS to protect monarchs

Monarch butterfly populations are near record lows. The destruction of their habitat and the milkweed they depend on has sent populations into a tailspin. Latest wintering counts show declines of 59% in eastern monarchs and 30% in western monarchs following an already low winter count from last year.

These butterflies can't afford to wait much longer. They deserve to see their young take flight -- not fight for their survival. The Endangered Species Act has an incredible track record for saving species, and the monarchs are no less worthy than the other saved or protected species.

Please make the right decision for monarchs and prevent another harsh winter by giving them endangered species protections.
