Planting Milkweed To Help Monarch Butterflies with Angie Babbit
The Monarch Butterfly was recently turned down by federal officials for protection by the Endangered Species Act. In this episode, we talk with Angie Babbit, communications director of MonarchWatch.org, about how this decision may actually help the Monarchs. Note: This interview was conducted shortly before the total number of Monarchs overwintering in Mexico was released to the public. Visit their link at: monarchwatch.org/blog. See population numbers for the last several years at: monarchwatch.org/blog/2021/02/25/monarch-population-status-45/. To order milkweed plants, go to monarchwatch.org and click on Milkweed Market.
