Monarch Butterflies are amazing animals that are in trouble because of climate change and habitat loss. Due to the use of herbicides, there are fewer and fewer milkweed plants, which are the only plants the Monarch will lay her eggs on and when they hatch, the caterpillars will eat. My goal is to educate the public about the plight of the Monarch and teach people how to plant milkweed (and other native flowers that provide nectar) to help the Monarchs. Even though I am only 11 years old, my family has been very supportive in my decisions as a conservationist. I am homeschooled and that has given me the chance and time to study many environmental causes and sciences, such as lepidopterology. I live by the saying "Mighty oaks from little acorns grow," and no matter how young someone is, everyone can make a difference in helping our world.
