Help Monarch Butterflies this Spring
Monarch Butterflies (Danaus plexippus) are an amazing species! I am using an exclamation mark because my awe and a sense of emotional magic that these tiny creatures deliver to us, humans, are unprecedented.
A butterfly which crosses millions of miles returning to her initial start-up point of travel 200% renewed in body and wings and all. This is not a small thing to anybody!
Yet the decline of the butterflies, especially of the MONARCH SPECIES has been undeniably drastic in the past years. This all has been happening to two major reasons:
#1 Loss of Habitat, and
# Poisonous Chemicals Used on Crops
Once this species of animals is gone – there’s no REVERSE. There will be a HUGE change comparable only to the BIG BANG that happened millions years ago.
FYI: Keep in mind, that it is not an exaggeration when we compare the MONARCH SPECIES Extinction with the Big Bang. These butterflies play an invisible to human eye role in our ecosystem. Once they’re gone, the circle of life will start experiencing the fallout.
Imagine a table with four legs. Take out one leg and see what will happen. You have a very vivid picture of that picture, don’t you? The same will start happening to our world, Earth, ecosystems, and our lives.
Monarch Butterflies are just one tiny particle of the magical glue that holds this world together and allows the human beings to rip the benefits of the beauty life brings.
