On today’s Your Call, we’ll talk about the plight of the monarch butterfly. Every year, monarchs migrate thousands of miles from Canada to Mexico, but their numbers are rapidly dwindling. Habitat destruction from logging in Mexico and the elimination of milkweed in the US have brought this species to a tipping point. April 14th is a Day of Action for Monarchs. How can we protect them? And why does it matter? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.
