We received handouts and were presented information about the incredible story of Monarch butterflies. There are many ways we can help; planting milkweed, including nectar plants in our gardens and even raising them ourselves. Taken in to our homes, the Monarch's survival rate from egg to butterfly increases to almost 100%. In the wild, their survival rate is less than 10%.
Here is a link to a short National Geographic YouTube video that shows the life cycle.
