There’s ample science—including a new study by Center for Food Safety—linking Monsanto’s Roundup to the collapse of the world’s monarch butterfly population.
Why? Because Roundup kills the milkweed plant, which is essential to the monarch’s survival.
In order to protect the monarch’s habitat, and save the monarch, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) is considering a petition, submitted by the Center for Biological Diversity and the Center for Food Safety, seeking protection for the monarch butterfly under the Endangered Species Act.
Until we successfully ban Roundup for good, placing the Monarch on the Endangered Species List is our best hope for saving America’s favorite butterfly from extinction.
