It’s official—Monarch butterflies are on the Endangered Threatened Species “Red List.”

Their status was announced by the International Union for Conservation of Nature last week, but we still await a status change from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Some of the largest contributing factors include significant loss of milkweed habitat and growth, as well as an increased use of herbicides, pesticides, and other chemicals.

Now for the good news. As said by John F. Kennedy, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”

    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.

    I’m proud to have written one of those five-star reviews. I know the overall population of butterflies has declined quite a bit in the last decade. There are many issues, some of which are still theories.

  11. Congratulations, Bette! Really, who’s surprised if they’ve read this book???


  12. Congratulations on the excellent reviews, Bette! This is an excellent post.


  13. Oh Bette, how marvelous and well deserved!


  14. Congratulations! My memoir has 82 5-star ratings/reviews, but you have outdone me. This 97 IS awesome, and I know you have worked hard to produce this book in the first place-and then to promote it, another round of work in itself. Again, CONGRATULATIONS, BETTE!

    One hundred reviews are just around the corner! I’m so proud of you.


  15. Congratulations on the stellar reviews, Bette! Monarch butterflies were such a part of my growing up years, I never imagined they’d become endangered.


  16. Wonderful Bette! Congratulations.
