From the Chicago Tribune:

In the last 25 years, monarchs’ populations have plunged by the hundreds of millions, according to the wildlife service’s species status assessment report. The black and orange butterflies have to contend with insecticides, loss of milkweed — the plant monarchs lay eggs on and the caterpillars’ sole food source — and habitat loss. They’re also up against human-induced climate change and weather extremes.
