ACTION ITEM – Click this link to send an editable email (via NRDC) to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, to Demand that the EPA adopt tough restrictions on the toxic herbicides imperiling monarchs.
The number of monarch butterflies has declined by more than 80% in the last 20 years. What’s to blame? Big Ag’s use of potent glyphosate-based herbicides like Monsanto’s Roundup is killing off native milkweed plants that monarchs need to survive. Milkweed is the only food source for monarch caterpillars. So no milkweed means no monarchs.
