Monarchs need protection

Dear USFWS Director Aurelia Skipwith,

Monarch butterfly overwintering populations have plummeted to less than 1 percent of their numbers in 1980. There's no time to waste: To protect one of nature's most incredible creatures, we need to extend Endangered Species Act protections to monarchs now.

I urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect these beautiful nomads by listing them as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
