Monarchs have been on earth for over 10 million years, but humans have had a negative impact on the preservation of their habitat. Their magical migration and the host plant milkweed are both in danger. Logging in the fog-covered fir trees in the central Mexican highlands and constant new development of the California coast are tearing away at the “coat of protection” for the monarch’s wintering sites. All around the USA, milkweed is being cut away for commercial development.
