The milkweed is disappearing due to more and more housing being built. Humans tend to take so long to do anything about their habitat, if it does not provide financial gain. For once, we are doing something about this hopefully without it being too late--or for personal gain. Our provincial and federal parks have had fields and fields of milkweed planted, in hopes to provide food and homes for the Monarch Butterfly. More people are growing them in their gardens, as well. Well done, Humans!
