Happy Valentine’s Day! Zoobooks is a member of the National Wildlife Federation, and this Valentine’s Day, we’re teaming up with them to help save the monarch butterfly. Here’s a message from the NWF:
If there’s any wildlife species that needs lots of love this Valentine’s Day, it’s the monarch butterfly!
Monarch populations plummeted almost 90% in 20 years due to habitat loss. These magnificent butterflies have lost MILLIONS of acres of prairie grassland habitat—where milkweed host plants that monarch caterpillars feed on and nectar-providing wildflowers grow. But the newly introduced Recovering America’s Wildlife Act can provide the help needed for monarchs to recover and thrive.
On February 14th, we’ll deliver a “Be Mine” Valentine’s message attached to a monarch butterfly plushie to every member of Congress. Please add your name to the card. Urge YOUR representative to be a Valentine for monarchs by supporting the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act.
