The Monarch butterfly

The iconic Monarch butterfly was once a familiar sight, now plummeting toward extinction due to landscape-scale threats from pesticides, development and climate change. The western population is suffering a 99% decline. They are threatened by pesticides — including toxic neonicotinoids and herbicides, which are killing off the milkweed plants they need to survive — as well as urban development and climate change.

The evolution

This Monarchetype Masaica evolved by increasing the amount of chemosensoric receptors that detect scent. A more robust armour to withstand the extremes in weather caused by climate change, and having a longer lifespan.

How to save them

Planting milkweed, reducing pesticides and protecting overwintering sites.
