Monarch butterfly population at record low

And human activity is to blame, as this article points out. The thrill of watching migrating Monarchs cross the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay on their way south in the fall is just one of many Wild Nature moments that is, in itself, endangered because of what we - humans - are doing to Wild and Free Nature. The photo shows healthy Common Milkweed plants (the big leaves) at West Rutland Marsh, central Vermont.
