Dear Mark,

Monsanto’s herbicides are pushing monarch butterflies to extinction — and we need your help to make sure they don’t finish the job.

Monarch populations have crashed by more than 80 percent, and it’s clear that Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide is a leading culprit. These beautiful butterflies — renowned for their epic journeys from Canada to Mexico each year — used to thrive on farms across the Midwest, but Roundup has obliterated the host milkweed plants they need to survive. Without milkweed, America’s growing fields have become a vast desert for these migrating pollinators.

The Center for Biological Diversity is leading the fight to save monarchs from the products of Monsanto and other chemical companies.

You can help us with a gift to the Pollinator Protection Fund.

The Center has a plan to save monarch butterflies. We’ve petitioned to have them safeguarded under the Endangered Species Act, which will require protection of their most important habitat and the creation of a long-term action plan to ensure their survival. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service promises an important ruling by December.

In the meantime, we’re going after a whole range of industry poisons. In the largest lawsuit of its kind, we’ve sued the EPA to force it to review more than 50 different chemicals for their effects on plants and animals, including monarchs. We’ve got to stop Monsanto and other corporate giants from dumping toxic chemicals onto our fields and streams without accounting for what they do to wildlife.

You can support the Center’s litigation with a donation today to the Pollinator Protection Fund.

Without pollinators like butterflies, bees and bats, crucial food crops will fail to reproduce and complex ecosystems will unravel. We must protect these little species who carry out the big job of pollination. If we don’t the world will be a much more sterile place.

Give to the Pollinator Protection Fund today.

For the wild,

Kierán Suckling
Executive Director
Center for Biological Diversity
