Adopt a Monarch Butterfly

Monarch Butterfly

Symbolically Adopt a Monarch Butterfly

The colourful monarch butterfly is famed for the epic journey it makes twice each year, migrating as much as 4,000 km north in the spring, and returning south again in the fall. During the spring and summer months, the monarch lays its eggs on the leaves of the milkweed — the only plant monarch caterpillars will feed on.

Monarch population numbers have dropped sharply in recent years — a decline that scientists believe is caused, in part, by threats to habitat. Here in Ontario, where the monarch is listed as Species of Special Concern, community groups and Conservation Authorities are working to restore habitat for monarchs and other pollinators through planting projects.
