Jean’s father created beautiful flower gardens. His gardens attracted many butterflies, bees and ladybugs. How can these beautiful insects be endangered? They do so much for us.
The Monarch Butterfly migrates from Nova Scotia to Mexico for the winter. This over-wintering habitat has been a problem and has caused a decline in the population that migrates to North America. The numbers in North America have declined. The numbers in Nova Scotia have not declined significantly.
We can provide a habitat where the Monarch Butterflies can breed and multiply. I have a butterfly garden and have planted milkweed plants. This is what the Monarch Butterfly uses to breed. Let’s all plant milkweed.
