In July 2022, the migratory monarch (Danaus Plexippus) was put on the IUCN Red List as an Endangered species.
These magnificent insects migrate thousands of miles each Fall to overwintering grounds in Mexico and California. Their populations have dwindled by over 80% in recent years due to factors like loss of habitat and insecticide use.
