Is the monarch butterfly the next to go?

“Normally by now, hundreds of Mexico trees would be covered by wintering monarchs, but so far it’s only 12 trees.”

– Lincoln Brower, Ph.D., Biologist, Sweet Briar College, VA.

While this article, Monarch Butterfly Migration at Lowest Numbers on Record, and interview focus on the Monarch Butterfly, the parallels to the plight of the honey bees are clear. The Monarch Butterfly may be the next poster child testifying to the ongoing environmental damage. What we aren’t hearing about much in the media is the destruction of a wide range of life forms which have no mentors to represent them. Scroll down about half way through the article for the MP3 and the audio interview of Dr. Brower.
