Monarch needs Milkweed
Monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed plant. The milkweed plant provides all the nourishment the monarch needs to transform the caterpillar into the adult butterfly. But these plants are rapidly disappearing, due to the loss of habitat from land development and the widespread spraying of weed killer on the fields where they live.
