Climate Change Threatens Monarch Butterfly Migration, Eco-Tourism

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and environmental partners announced a program Monday aimed at regrowing critical habitat for the imperiled monarch butterfly.

The Fish and Wildlife Service is committing $2 million to the plan, while the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, an organization created by Congress that devotes public and private funds to conservation work, is committing $1.2 million. The National Wildlife Federation is also involved with the campaign.

At an event unveiling the initiative, Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe said it will “ensure a future for this iconic species.”
