Most of us now know that the migratory monarchs are in danger. A December 2013 census confirms the smallest population ever in the overwintering forests of central Mexico. Only seven small colonies were located, with coverage of 0.67 hectares, compared to more than 18 hectares of wintering adults measured in 1996.

According to monarch specialist Chip Taylor, director of Monarch Watch in Kansas, the current rate of decline will result in monarchs losing genetic viability in only a year or two. Monarchs are symbolic of all pollinators, including honeybees and native moths, which also are suffering from environmental change and serious population decreases.
