HOPE for Amazing Monarch Butterflies
February 20, 2014
Leaders from U.S., Mexico & Canada have just agreed to help protect this threatened species through the NAFTA trade agreement.
PRESS RELEASE May 24, 2019
WASHINGTON— In an agreement approved today, the Center for Biological Diversity and Center for Food Safety accepted an extended deadline for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to decide on protection for monarch butterflies under the Endangered Species Act.
In light of the extreme effects climate had on the butterfly’s population last year, two more overwintering counts will be available before a listing decision is issued in December 2020.
