Monarch butterflies as a species are not currently at risk of extinction, but the subspecies that migrates through North America is considered vulnerable by IUCN. Their overwinter and summer breeding habitats have both faced destruction from agricultural development. This includes the use of herbicides that kill milkweed, the host plant of monarchs. Conservation efforts to protect monarchs include protecting their overwintering sites and planting milkweed in gardens. Monarch butterflies are one of the many species you can learn about in the Photo Ark exhibit opening this Friday.
