“Cataloguing the migratory monarch butterfly of North America to the IUCN Red List, could be an opportunity for the species,” says Eduardo Rendon-Salinas, WWF-Mexico’s monarch butterfly expert. With the monarch classified as Endangered, “The governments of Canada, the United States, and Mexico have the scientific basis to collaborate with conservation organizations, the private sector, and civil society in all the initiatives that seek to restore, conserve, and sustainably manage the ecosystems for the reproduction, migration, and overwintering of this emblematic species.”
In other words: We have the science, we have the answers; Now it is up to us to take action.
